The NH fare doesnt appear to allow routing thru HKG.
Agreed. I can definitely price the UA fare with a stopover in HKG, although I had to force the fare on ITA for some reason:

Example:
12/20: YVR - UA5547 - LAX - UA7983 - HND - UA7907 - HKG
12/27: HKG - KA729 - KUL
1/2: KUL - NH816 - NRT - UA7950 - SFO - UA404 - YVR

Price: US $1899

ITA routing commands, by segment: ac,ua* lax,sfo ua,nh* / f ua.yvr+kul.plxtzdm0
cx, ka
oz,nh,mi,sq ua sfo ua,ac* / f ua.yvr+kul.plxtzdm0

I take back my earlier comment as I found a better routing and cancelled the original ticket. In case anyone is interested from YYC:

Found YYC-BKK at Christmas time for the same price. AC/EVA on the way there and KE/AC on the way back. It was only available on a handful of OTAs, I booked through Priceline, and this fare did not show up on Google Flights or even Matrix without forcing the routing!

HND connection

I found YVR-HND-KUL-NRT-SEA-YVR through google flights and when i click on 'buy with united' I do see the advertised price (i.e. ~CAD 2600). All long haul sectors are on ANA, which I want.

However when I proceed to actually pay with a US credit card, the United site 'repoduces flight options' in USD and the problem is I can no longer see any HND connections.

Questions:
1) Any tips on how to get the YVR-HND-KUL sector to show up on United's US site?

2) How do I ticket what I found on Google flights and United Canada site i.e. YVR-HND-KUL-NRT-SEA-YVR with a US credit card?

Thanks

The fares are still in place (expiring 6/30). P inventory may have dried up on the dates you're checking. ITA shows US$1811 for YVR/SFO/NRT/KUL from 12/21-12/27.
