[NOT BOOKABLE] UX: UIO-BCN biz eco mixed, USD 1,028 rt?

A few Sat. departures showing up on Google Flights for Apr. and May. All dates seem to return UIO-LIM-MAD-BCN-MAD-LIM-UIO routing, UIO-LIM legs both way economy with TAME, the rest is business with UX. Google Flights tells me to click the button to get directed to book with FlightNetwork, although the prices jump more than 10x. I think that's because FN (and almost all OTAs) doesn't allow to book mixed cabins. Kayak allows me to search for different cabins each leg, but couldn't produce this itinerary.

Matrix ITA shows the fare, although with less dates available than Google Flights. I was going to call FlightNetwork to book over the phone, but Matrix ITA no longer shows this fare for the date I want (although it still shows up on Google Flights), so I'm hesitant to call.

Any ideas how to book this?

I'm almost 100% percent certain this can be booked if you can pull it up on matrix. Do you mind sending me the flight page on matrix, so I can try to help you? I can't even pull this fare up.

LOL, somebody already put 'not bookable on the title.

On calendar view, I sometimes don't see the fare anymore, but when I choose certain dates, the fare shows up:
https://matrix.itasoftware.com/#view...-04-07;stay=11
https://matrix.itasoftware.com/#view...LN29SUY1Ks300a

The date pair that I found on Google Flights and want to book is 4/14-20.

It seems that the fare is there, but no OTAs can price it out. I recommend calling a travel agent to book it for you.
