Hmm but by searching for award availability, 1 seat shows up. Why doesn't it show up in EM as O1?

EM does not show partner award availability, classes O (F), I (J), or X (Y).

This is an LH-operated flight, code-shared by UA.

Right, that was explained me to up above.
classes O (F), I (J), or X (Y).
From Dan's DDMS post, it seems like O could be shown:
Quote
2. On a United flight with 3 classes of service there are more letters to know about.
F is full fare paid first class. FN is a first class standard award. A is discounted paid first class. ON is upgrade space into first class. O is a saver first class award.

I read this

as EM can't show 1) Partner 2) Class O even on UA 3) Class I even on UA 4) Class X even on UA

Did I misread?

My that is a tortured reading of that statement.

The word "partner" modifies all that comes subsequent to it, including the dependent clause that follows the comma, which explains the independent clause that comes before it.

Thus, EM cannot show partner award class O, partner award class I, and partner award class X.

Thus, EM does not show LH F awards, LH J awards, or LH Y awards.

Thus, the only thing EM can be used for is UA awards/loads, and/or loads on partner-operated flights.

In one word, you can't use EM to search for partner award availability  :)
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Would you book the I seat in the hopes that the IN (or other seats) get released to I eventually?

2 suggestions.
1) Book one person in the 1 open I seat, and the other person in XN and do a plan b
2) Use an elites account and book both people in IN
