How long after I release a LY hold booked on AA, does it show back in the system? I know that AA or BA show instantly, does LY too?

Long story short- Just booked 6 LY tickets via AA and got the $35 booking fee waived.

Saved me $210!

regarding the LY flight probably someone wait-listed via matmid (probably the only benefit of matmid over aa)  ;)
