Tried Brussels and Houston- neither could do it.
Since there is a possibility that Miles and More would release seats for a LH Gold, I decided to verify if it is true that LX will not release to CO. Just to experiment, I asked BD to do a dummy reward booking for me and it was done without any problem.
Call AGAIN. I've done this successfully.

But I'm confident that the LX seats were not available on the ANA website
