If I booked a Lufhtansa flight with United awards when it was still the lower rate, and I reebok now, will I have a problem changing the flight again if some better flight comes up?

No.
Thanks.
How about if I rebook nyc-fra-tlv, but the fra-tlv portion is only available In economy, if buisness opens up will I have an issue changing that leg to buisness?

I can get them the same price for the afternoon. You can PM me.

Hi, I'm also interested in getting flights from FLL on 1/25, but can be to any NYC airport.  You said you can get for the same price/points as early am flights.  Care to share?

Thanks

I know this may come across as me being spoiled but whatever the case is here is my question...
I booked a flight 5pm on UA in J on a 767-300 aircraft. I see now they switched it to a 757 which is an old plane. I made the reservation via Aeroplan. There is a 4:05pm flight on a 767 that is more new.. Do I have any pull to get them to allow me a change on the reservation or should I let it go?

You gotta drink Lechaim and make a dance that you were switched to the 757.

If there is no availability they will probably not be able to do anything. If there is availability you may be able to switch with no change fee. However the J product on the 757 is much nicer than the J on the 763.

May be known, and may not work, booked Lufthansa flight on united.com, was able to get the lufthansa confirmation # on united .com, log in to lufthansa, and request kosher meals, which immediately confirmed.

Can I book for example NYC-MEL while there is a long layover in LAX, then change to a shorter layover for free?
