I want to travel from Málaga, Spain (AGP) to Holguín, Cuba (HOG) around January or February 2023 (this is a follow-up of this question). Both Google Flights and ITA Matrix offer combinations with final leg from Toronto by Air Canada. However there is a shorter and cheaper itinerary with a single stop at FRA, with the added benefit of not requiring visa (I am a Schengen citizen).
- 21/1/23 Lufthansa 1149
- 22/1/23 Condor 2206
- 29/1/23 Condor 2207
- 30/1/23 Lufthansa 1148
Why does this combination not appear in search engines? It cannot be booked on a single ticket (at least on the web) and it requires one overnight layover, but so do some results that appear. Only when I use the multi-city option can I get this result.
As a bonus question, could a travel agent book this itinerary on a single ticket? (It is intriguing that Condor does offer Havana or Varadero on a single ticket including a leg from LH, but not Holguin)
EDIT: This has been suggested as duplicate. It certainly has an overlap, but the OP specifically mentions they want a single ticket, which I am resigned to dispense with. Also the agreement from Condor to LH exists for Cuba destinations, given the cases of Havana and Varadero. What intrigues me is why the search does not give the itinerary even as separate tickets.
