Why does AA run F to HKG but not Japan?

This may be an elementary question, but it makes little sense to me that AA runs F to Hong Kong and not Japan (or elsewhere in Asia for that matter).

JL seems to have demonstrated steady demand for F between Japan and the US, much like CX has to/from HK, so why would AA choose not to take advantage of this?

Is it simply a matter of AA deemphasizing longhaul F overall and having to make do with a limited number of 777-300s (only enough to reliably run the plane on a couple of routes)? Or, is there a deeper commercial reason Iím overlooking?

If you had to predict, would you say AA is more likely to increase TPAC F offerings, decrease, or not change them at all in the short to mid term?
