I want to buy a plane ticket from Portland, Oregon (PDX) to Fukuoka, JAPAN (FUK). The most obvious schedule is to take the direct flight from Portland to Tokyo (NRT) on Delta airlines and then a flight from from Tokyo to Fukuoka on either ANA or JAL. The problem is that I cannot get this schedule to appear on any site online site (Delta/Expedia/Travelocity/Orbitz/Kayak/Hipmunk) despite the fact that it seems I that I could buy these tickets separately (ie. the flights are not full). What is going on here? Is there someway I can book this ticket online or is there some reason this schedule can't be ticketed?

The dates I am trying are PDX->FUK on 26-DEC-2013 - FUK->PDX on 25-JAN-2014

  • @Geeo Fixed the dates. Yes, I can see the schedule on skyscanner which forwards me to ebookers to make the reservation. Still don't understand why none of the major online sites wouldn't return this obvious itinerary....

    I could bring up flights on matrix.itasoftware.com (XLX9ZNJQ fare using either JL or NH for the domestic segments), but could not force Kayak or Orbitz to show them even when trying to force a routing using Multi-City. Interesting.

You can take a look at Rome2Rio which gives the direct flight as one of the options, and so does Skyscanner.

The issue you may have been facing is actually for these search engines to describe it may have to do with how far in advance you're looking at, general search display conditions, availability of prices to them, etc
