Question Prices and availability for Mandarin/TransAsia TPE-ISG charter flights

So I'm given to understand that the following "scheduled charter" flights between Taipei-Taoyuan and Ishigaki (Japan) exist and are open to the public:

Mandarin Airlines
AE7334 TPE1140 1335ISG E90 36
AE7335 ISG1430 1425TPE E90 36

TransAsia Airlines
GE686 TPE0900 1055ISG 320 47
GE685 ISG1200 1200TPE 320 47

However, I'm unable to check prices/availability for either on the respective company websites, much less book online, and my usual stalwarts (ITA Matrix etc) don't even acknowledge that these flights exist. Are there any Taiwanese (or other) travel websites etc that would have this info? English/Japanese preferred, but I'll can puzzle out Chinese if needed.

My ultimate goal is to get a price for a SYD-TPE-ISG-(NRT/HND)-TPE-SYD loop, but I'd like to understand my options first.

Update: If the site below is to be believed, apparently the AE flights ended on Oct 26, to start again on Apr 02, and the GE flights ended on Oct 13, no start date published yet.

Although these other pages on the same site imply they're still flying?!

http://flyteam.jp/flightnumber/GE685

Either way, since I'm looking at Apr/May, I'd still like to find those prices.

AE are scheduled flights, but there are no published AE/CI Fares on that route -- you way wish to contact AE/CI directly:
