Others have beat me to it, but is love an SWU.

That being said, the previous poster is right, you can use them from several cities. It just takes a positioning flight.

You might even be able to use iron KUL-HKG-DFW with KUL-Hkg an AA codeshare on CX metal and Hkg -DFW on AA metsl. You'd only get upgrades on the transpacific portion but that's the big segment.

The advantage of this is that you'll get your bags checked all the way through, in spite of CXs new baggage interlude policy on separate tickets.

Similar options might exist from the other places mentioned.
