Tip, how to buy a flight that is impossible to take on Google flights or anywhere else
Version française here
How to buy a flight and which is impossible to buy on Google flights and you have to call a travel agent with no. flights for the purchase but unfortunately I have already called a travel agent once and it was impossible for him to have these prices either. Example here below.
But there is a solution and the only way to buy these multi-destination flights to Manila and Seoul at a good price for only $ 752 CAD, is to run a script in your browser that will give the opportunity to buy directly this trip on the search engine Matrix ITA software.
Here are the steps to follow:
Download an app for your browser eg: Google Chrome here
The app here is called Tampermonkey to download here
After the installation, you have to install a script that you find here and install it automatically in Tampermonkey which will roll the script afterwards.
Links to install the script -> Script for ITA Matrix
After installation, make sure the script works on your browser

Then go to the Matrix ITA Software website and if you see the script version at the top right corner of the page, it works.
With the install script, you can now take and buy flights with links directly to the Matrix ITA website. You have to redo the same search done in Google flights and enter that same search in Matrix ITA in details, so with the same no. flights, airports and dates to have the same result as your search on Google flights. If you do not know the codes of carriers like for example here with Asiana 703 = OZ703, you probably know here the code of Air Canada = AC061, here is a site where you can find all the carrier codes -> Code of air carriers
On the ITA website you have to click on the Advanced routing codes option to enter the carrier codes and the flight numbers exactly as in the search on Google flights above.

Here is an example for the trip searched with Google flights above copied on Matrix ITA with carrier codes and flights.
List of carrier codes
Here is the result with the script, you can see the links to take and buy the flights in question.
So now, you just have to buy this good deal for Asia directly on Air Canada by clicking on the + next to the Air Canada link, then choose CA to get the price in $ CAD.
That’s the result !! $ 752 CAD for Manila and Seoul from Montreal🙂 By the way, this deal is currently working!! You can look for other dates in Google flights and if the links do not work or give you the same price, just have to do the trick here with Matrix ITA with the script.
