AF: JFK-DXB in First $3,128 (Not Bookable?)

I assume this is a fare mapping issue or something similar, but I can't actually figure out what's going on. I hope it's okay for me to post it here.

Google Flights is showing a price of $3,128 for JFK-CDG-DXB in F on select dates from September onward (example), on Delta-marketed Air France flights. However, there is no direct booking link, and it doesn't seem to show up on OTAs. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can make something of it?

This has been popping up a lot recently.
AF: CAI-LAX/SFO in F for $3475 ?
I believe it's due to GF mapping A as first instead of PE, but that's just a guess.

I am not sure it's a problem with Premium Eco and La Première because when you choose PremEco on GF it shows a different price.
And I don't think AF sale Première on OTAs, well I wasn't able to find any availability, regarding prices...
Worth investigating on it!

Was able to book 3 of the CAI-SFO/LAX deal.
Won't tell you how as I don't want AF to know how if it's a mistake, but anyone with a few skill in booking hard or complex trips should be able too!
Good luck
