Thanks so much, you are so helpful!
They will open based on the whims of the revenue/inventory management folks. Basically, if they think that the seats are unlikely to sell then they become award seats. That can happen at any time, so there really isn't a pattern that can be drawn like "always at 30 days out 3 seats open up" or anything like that.

Good luck with the upgrade!
