Why does Google Flights no longer show Emirates flights from West Africa to the US?

A year or so ago I could include Emirates itineraries on Google Flights for my route. I am an expat in West Africa. I fly from ACC to the Eastern US, usually IAD, JFK, or EWR. ACC-IAD/JFK/EWR backtracks quite a bit, which I imagine is why Google Flights does not show it. But, it used to! This is a fairly recent change. The route shows on other OTA's, as well as Emirates' website, and it is bookable. I've booked it more than once on Emirates' website.

I have found no way to make it work on Google Flights. I tried using multi city, such as ACC-DXB and DXB-IAD, but it will show no flights if I designate "nonstop only" or "Emirates". It's not a huge deal since Google Flights doesn't do the booking anyway, but it is nice to see Emirates along with the other options.
