There could be another explanation, which is that a fare for that code has not been published or that some condition prevent you from buying that fare.

For example, AA may publishes only an S fare, so you can only buy an S fare, even though the flight has Q inventory. Alternatively, it may be that all the Q fares have 21 days advance purchase requirement, so within 7 days of departure, you will not be able to buy a Q-coded ticket, even though the flight has Q inventory available.
