New to the forum - sorry if this has been asked before.  If award shows available on Miles & More, should i be able to get it thru UA by calling in?

Saver space should be available although that doesn't apply to first class. Why not just check on UA?

not necessarily as m&m releases more saver seats for their own members

Not finding any LH availability in J on UA mid-August or late December TLV/FRA/MUC to JFK/EWR. Is it just too early or no availability at all?
