Google Flights AA Deeplinking no longer works for exAsia itinerary?

Is it just me or is deeplinking from google flights or ita matrix to AA for flights exAsia no longer works? I am trying to book a flight exAsia and found the flights I want on google flights, when clicking the "Book with American" link, it just times out.
Tried it for ex-HKG,PEK,TYO,ICN to US all fails, ex Europe to US works though.
Thoughts?

From my experiences, the EX-Asia prices are often 20% cheaper on AA's local websites (China, HK, Japan).

Google Flights is a basic tool that works sometimes, but can't be counted on to be as reliable as ITA.

I tried using AA's respective Asian website, same error when searching for flights. Tried it with FireFox, Chrome and IE, all failed
