Limited time will be to your benefit in focusing the AA agent
Honestly I think the UA option is unlikely to materialize. There are currently only 2 J seats and given how UA clears GPUs and does aggressive FCM it seems not reliable that within a few hours of flight time those seats will still be available...

Im putting my money on OP gets original seats if crew rest ends up not needed or will be downgraded to Y because there is not an option to go via other carriers in J on an acceptable routing. They will VDB someone in Y if needed to get OP a pair of seats but probably won’t need to given no shows, misconnects, etc
