R is the booking class that represents upgrade space from Economy to the next cabin level.
You could find it on ua.com after searching for a ticket by clicking on fare class. or expertflyer and similar sites will search for it.
When do they open this up? in Dec. do i have a chance to get upgraded?

Every flight is different, they will open it up when they think they can't sell it, and that no one will get it as a saver award, and that they can't offer it to non elites to buy a cheap upgrade before the flight. Were are you fling

Only if you use GPU (you get them if you are 1k) or with miles and co pay.

Do you get a free bag checked (if you have the United explorer card) , when booking an award ticket, and using the card to pay the $5 fee ?
Pleas hold. Your call will be answered in the order it was received.

Doctors note? Or a good reason you cancelled? Will knock it down to $50.

I am sick.  Shall I call and tell them?  Every time I call they send me to india.  They don't seem to be so kind.
