Don't want to risk losing the flights. Better to call and change?
Come on, you have 24 hours, no worries

How long after booking a ticket does the change flights option appear?
Once it tickets. Which can take
From a couple of minutes to 3 hours
or more.

Just spoke to United. Only the Standard award availability was there for 85K each way. Any way to know when they open up the seats that are 85K round trip?

Sometimes 24 hours out, sometimes less. Sometimes never

This may be a dumb question but where is the best place to book United award flights? Can it only be done on united.com or can it be done somewhere else for better mileage utilization?

Depends on the flight.

Depends where you're going to, ie when flying NYC-TLV booking through ANA will be cheaper then UA (that's all I know so I can't assist you any further..).

I have an international flight booked with United.  The economy seats  available for my family are scattered throughout. There are empty seats together in the economy plus section.

Is it likely that prior to boarding they would allow my family to sit together in the economy plus section without paying to upgrade?

With 70k miles Y makes more sense for us I guess.

I would recommend you to get the BA card and get 50K points it looks like only USair flies direct.
