Which has more C availability - LHR/ORD or LGW/DFW?

Sorry for the dumb question, but ever since the inavaluable Galileo site stopped working, I've been completely in the dark about upgrade avilability for my transatlantic trips.

We're going to PHX in May. I'd prefer LGW-DFW and v.v. for the transatlantic legs, but happy to fly to ORD, JFK or wherever.

Assuming the AA desk as (un) helpful as ever and can't / won't cour around to find me a routing with upgrade availabiltiy. I'm normally left to book the flights then put myself on an upgrade waitlist (these a mielage upgrades, not VIPs). Does anyone have experience of which routes are most likely to yield me a business class seat in both directions?

I've had success on both routes many times over the last couple of years, but mainly when I was able to scout around on the Galileo site myself, spot upgrade availability, then book the tickets.
