Question Does ITA Matrix take availability into account?

Hi, I'm relatively new here, if this isn't the right place or thread, please let me know. I've searched the web for answers but can't find anything definitive.

I'm looking to book a multi-city TLV -> SEA, SEA -> LAX, LAX -> TLV. Leaving in a couple of weeks so perhaps a bit late to have a whiff of a good deal. I found something decent on ITA Matrix, but using Book with ITA, the options tell me the itinerary is unavailable, and trying to type the itinerary into AA's website doesn't reveal any availability at all. (Although I also get a weird message that I might be a bot and I've tried two different browsers.)

So, is the problem that ITA Matrix doesn't filter out unavailable fares? I've used it with success in the past but I've been able to plan further ahead. The prices that I'm seeing in Google Flights for Premium Economy are similar to the prices in ITA Matrix for J.
