If you are looking for a certain flight which is available for points on UA ask them to waitlist you as a "good" operator can. If its available it should push through and come up as available within a day.

BTW flew that flight recently and the load was only us and 2 others. Never seen a flight so quiet. Economy was full.
This is on Brussels airlines?
