Question Can't find fare on AA.com

Hi,

Here it is:

I would start by phoning the airline and see whether an agent can price up the same

If google flights has returned accurate information on valid fares, then should be possible for an EY agent to price it

Three things. First, I don't believe AA.com can price out EY flights.
Second, you may want to use ita to look at how the fare was combined, as you may want to book separately.
Lastly, I believe you will get SSSS in the US if your itinerary involves KHI(personal experience)

Won't booking this separately mean I won't get the price as per Google flights?

SSSS is not a problem. Yes I have had it plenty of times from KHI but also from MEL. That just depends on a lot of other things. I know plenty of others who regularly travel from KHI and haven't had SSSS but if I do get it, its unavoidable anyway and nothing to do with the fare itself.

Not necessarily. It could be that google flights have combined multiple fares and each component can be booked separately. That's why you have to look into the fare structure

For some reason I can't find it on ITA at the moment but forwarded it on to my travel agent and he has come back with the same price and bookable so that's good news!

Now to calculate if this fare will meet the 25k EQP requirement for my AA EXP challenge...

Just a heads up, I don't believe the EY or QR segments will count towards the challenege

Correct. I am aware of that. Checking with TA if first two flights can be booked with AA flight number as codeshare...
