Cannot book RT mixed cabin

I am trying to book a fare on TK with economy on the outbound and business on the return, but can't seem to get it to price anywhere. Any suggestions?

Don't try return trip, try one way economy one way business. So far as I know, no price advantage in return over 2 x one way.

So you buy 2 one-ways? Isn't that so much more expensive?

This is what I'm trying to book.
KUL-HBE in W-class (economy)
SSH-HKG in K class (business)

Ahh! Multi city search so no option to select different classes. Try to call TK call center and see if they can help you.
A multi city ticket as you requested will cost about $1,300.
2 OWs will cost about $1,600.
An RT biz ticket witll cost about $1,900.

Try this script:

ITA-Matrix-PowerTools - Userscript for Orbitz/DL/UA/AA/BA/CZ/IB/LA/LH/LX/TK

I've had mixed luck using the script to book on TK.com, but never had any problems booking via the script and Priceline.

TK call center priced it at the $992 I saw on Matrix, but they insisted on charging the $40 service fee. I put it on hold and will try calling Malaysia office tomorrow.

I tried to put an RT business on hold and then ask them to change it, but I was told that if they even touched the itinerary they would charge the $40 service fee. They also said they don't honor the US DOT 24 hour free cancellation so I didn't dare book anything (not sure if this is legal....didn't CX get in trouble for this).

Do they offer a 24 hour hold on the fare? If they do they have no obligation to offer 24 hour cancellation.... Its a choice they have - there is no solid "US DOT 24 hr cancellation rule"
