HU : PEK - SJC or CTU - LAX $ 550

MODERATOR NOTE: This is not a business fare. It's a common fare mapping issue.

I have gone crazy. Google travel shows availability at $550 but when you go to Orbitz or Cheapofare or even Hainan air, it does not give the fare and Orbitz & Cheapofare takes the link to select first class and even if you change it back no fares are available. Can some on solve this mystery

Fare mapping error. Books into HU A class, but A is Economy on Hainan (earns 200% EY miles tho)

You'll see the exact same price if you search it on HU's website but select Economy instead of Business. Under fare conditions, you'll see "BK:A".

can we have a sticky not to post HU fares until the fare is properly matched to the class? It's about as irritating on google flights as Delta Comfort+ showing as "Premium Economy" when it's all but.

It's not deal unless you can book it. Why post the deal if you weren't able to book?

It is already covered in sticky in the Rules of the Premium Fare Forum. Rule 2. Post Active Fare Deals Only.

Fares that are not bookable should not be posted at all.
