The "no longer available" message appears on aa.com when you are choosing a flight on the first day it becomes available, but including a connection that is the following calendar day (because it's overnight to Doha). It's a bug, AA should not be displaying flights that can't be booked; but it's not a conspiracy.

That's originally what I thought but even within the range it happens repeatedly. I have been looking for a CDG-AKL... it shows availability on multiple flights but when you go to book it it says it's no longer available. Driving me nuts!
