Many international routes now involve YQ fuel surcharges that are not included in all pricing engines. I'm guessing that the $404 number you're seeing is from something like the KVS Fares/TVL engine, right? That leverages and that site isn't including the YQ in the initial search results page so the numbers you see are lower than the actual price.

Actually that has nothing to do with it in this case.
