I am planning a trip from Germany (FRA) to Andalucia Dec. 22-Jan. 7. I am using kayak and am using MAD, AGP as my destination.
Kayak shows me a mixed business/economy FRA-AGP, MAD-FRA $478 ticket on Iberia with business class the FRA-AGP portion and coach the MAD-FRA portion. However, when I go to book it, I am not seeing prices or options that look anything at all like that.
My question is: how can I get that price or should I give up and book with someone else?

Note, it is operated by Air Norstrum so is highly likely to be cancelled/shifted as they have been doing it a lot throughout December.
EDIT: I see on Iberia's website that Air Norstrum are operating this via Madrid so it may not exist anymore. I would book the following with BA.com as it is cheaper (also less chance of being on a strike-ridden Iberia flight)
