That index structure is really entirely unsuited to what you want to do,
so it's not surprising that the planner isn't impressed with the idea of
a bitmap AND.
I'd suggest setting up something involving a gist index over an
interval-ish datatype. The PERIOD datatype that Jeff Davis is fooling
with would do what you want --- see
If you don't want any add-on parts involved, you could fake it by using
a box or possibly lseg.
