I'm waiting for some F award fares (O) to open up for a *alliance award trip I have upcoming and I will change my award ticket. As posted here before, based on expected load they tend to show up anywhere between 1 day and 14 days before. What I haven't been able to figure out is what time the loads are updated?
I tried to search for the answer but couldn't find it other than a somewhat related reference to midnight.
I've seen what appears to be updates at various times - is there a usual time or is it a bit of a lottery? I have seen updates around 5pm EST and 7pm EST, and later.

The westbound TATL fare buckets are updated around noon German time, the eastbound by UA sometime noon Chicago time. The complete recalculation of a flight is done monthly till about T-1 month, then weekly till 1-2 weeks before then daily.
