I'm sure the US airlines would love to set up a low cost subsidiary somewhere else where they can pay the pilots peanuts but current (and future) labor contracts require any routes by the airline to be flown by union pilots at the contracted pay rates.

In Europe, Asia, and even parts of south America we have a more (or somewhat, sorta) more established name brand operating under a different host company.
SE Asia came to mind first with
Thai VietJet, Thai Air Asia, Indonesia Air Asia
Easyjet Switzerland, All of the Tui brands.
Why have no u.S. carriers tried setting this up, or do they need a treaty to allow it both ways?
