Only with aggressive negotiations.

There are several different ways to get space that are shareable, fyi

1) book connecting flights on partner airlines and if schedule changes screw your trip, force them to put you on UA metal.

2) transfer in points for a phantom LH (or other phantom space) flight then call and cry that you transferred your points for this trip and get them to put you on UA metal

I assume these only work when booking with United miles
