Unless it is tue/wed mid day or saturday, I don't find that hard to believe at all for 23 paid F pax. ORD-LAX is just like ORD-SFO, often with many paid premium pax, and that's why VX want to get in this two markets.

Three F seats for sale doesn't equal to three F seats still open, airlines often expect no show or misconnect due to whatever reasons. Even it may listed F3, but it doesn't means they are selling 3 F seats either. You won't know the true inventory unless you are one of the UA rep. that has access to their reservation.
