Looks like it is impossible. Any other sites to check?
With AA & UA ff miles all you can do is keep checking.
Some other people would have started looking/booking from 330 days out
AUH is a good alternative to DXB as it close by road.
As above, not all AA award partners show on line.

Good luck. For 3 x J awards close to Christmas/New Year holiday time I would nor be hopeful.
Maybe time to start looking at cash fares. The price may start to climb as time goes on
