Do Classic Award itineraries with >1 transit not show up on searches ?

Hi guys,

I am looking for a way back home from LAX next year, and I think FJ might have a solution for me, the problem is, it is not showing up on a search as a single bookable itinerary.
When I search for April 24th LAX-NAN I see FJ with availability leaving at 2330 and arriving at 0530+2.

Then when i search April 26th NAN-MEL I see FJ with availability leaving at 0815 and arriving into MEL at around 14:30 after a couple of hours transit in BNE.
But I cannot get LAX-MEL with transits in NAN and BNE to come up on a search - why is this ? I only get LAX-BNE/SYD/MEL coming up on searches. Is it because it has more than one transit ?

The problem with booking it as two itineraries is lack of protection if the flight from LAX is delayed for any reason. Why I don't expect NAN to be a massive airport, I do realise that 2h 45mins is not a lengthy international connection.

Perhaps I could book it on the one PNR if done over the phone ?
Does anyone have any experience with something like this ? Can itineraries on airlines which can be booked online be done over the phone without being slugged a phone service fee ? In this case actually I'd be happy to pay the fee...

Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.
