SDC with UA partner on first segment

I had no luck for SDC with Air China first segment (rest on UA). I ended with paying change fees ($120), but the agent got her supervisor to waive the fare difference (>$700 with U original fare) after she were unable to get my original routing back. I guess that Air China stopped selling ticket with UA segments (according to my search result). The new itinerary is all on UA.
Just a data point!
