Upgrading on Thai with MP miles?

Have anyone ever been able to upgrade on Thai using MP miles? I’d like upgraded flights on Thai (LAX-BKK on 10/7- BKK-LAX on 10/22) so about a week ago I bought the B fares required in order to upgrade to Biz using MP miles. I’ve been calling in every day and, of course, no space yet… Today though, a UA Premier Exec agent told me “Ha! I’ve only seen these confirm 48-72 hours out…but you can certainly keep trying”. Anyone ever have any luck confirming an upgrade on Thai AT ANY TIME? When calling Thai Air for an answer, they make it sound as if UA is to blame for me not getting an upgrade and we all know how generous UA is in giving out upgrades on other airlines...

My fallback plan is to opt for Premium Economy but I’d much rather go Biz…
