Finding ITA Matrix Price Emirates

Hi there! I have found a good deal on ITA Matrix for some flights on Emirates and can't find the Matrix flight. I've tried to look for the price in Emirates' website and many others and haven't been able to find it.

These are the flights:
Leg 1: BCN-SIN (via DXB)
15/03: EK188 (22:05-07:50)+1
16/03: EK404 (09:30-20:45)
Leg 2: SIN-DXB
20/03: EK355 (21:00-01:00)+1
Leg 3: DXB-BCN
28/03: EK185 (08:15-13:25)

Fare 1: Carrier EK TE1MPES1 BCN to SIN (rules) Passenger type ADT, round trip fare, booking code T Covers BCN-DXB (Economy), DXB-SIN (Economy)

Fare 2: Carrier EK TE1MPES1 SIN to BCN (rules) Passenger type ADT, round trip fare, booking code T Covers SIN-DXB (Economy), DXB-BCN (Economy)

Fare Construction (can be useful to travel agents)
BCN EK X/DXB EK SIN 111.57TE1MPES1 EK DXB EK BCN 111.57TE1MPES1 NUC 223.14 END ROE 0.896229 XT 18.61JD 0.59OG 3.78QV 18.63AE 1.25TP 1.25ZR 5.20OO 3.97OP 12.93SG 294.00YQ

What should I do in order to book the flights with this fare? Should I contact a local travel agent and provide him with the fare construction or contact Emirates directly?

Thanks in advance.
Regards.

Hi, thanks for your answer.
How do you know that?
Does that mean that the fare cannot be booked?

checked in a GDS.

sometimes the ita matrix shows availability and routings - especially when you have a stopover - which are not correct.

fair cannot be booked unless the booking class opens up again

I suspect the OP had found cheaper on ITA before discovering it couldn't be booked like that (all T).

The fares you found are "U" on the inbound legs.
