How soon before a flight does United open up additional economy saver award tickets?

Looking for ORD-LIH in mid Jan but there is 0 seats available.

Anyone? Please

No way to tell, keep checking 4 times a day or set an alert with EF.

Can I assume additional seats will open up in the future (economy class) and therefore wait or should I just book now non-optimal flights?

Are you (explicit) kidding me?
How can I use MR points for UA domestic?
LM, AC, SQ
Does UA award space only show on sq when there is saver availability?
Yes, as well as every other partner.

I don't know if this is the right thread, lmk if not.. Is anyone else having problems logging into their LifeMiles account? I've been getting errors, called them up, after waiting 30 minutes on the line they tell me that my account was blocked for no given reason, I signed up for a new account on wife's name and I'm receiving errors msgs now as well. Would appreciate if someone can advise.

Hi,
Can you please help me with booking a ticket?

What is the cheapest way to travel from Israel to Brusell's in 2 weeks?
$180 ticket cash, or miles? Should I go through Avianca, United, AA or Flying Blue or Chase?
Which is the cheapest option for airline program mileage? Thank you very much for your help

Would Miles and more have better availability for an Austrian Airline flight than United?
