We are flying the same flight and we booked our flights as award tickets much in advance. However, the flight was in 10 days when we were booking hers and there was no way to find saver availability, and there was no flexibility either as she needed to fly with us (it would be quite awkward if me and my wife sat upfront and the mother-in-law had to sit in Y). Lastly, even if saver space was available, we had to book a round-trip. Thus, a one-way award + one-way cash return ticket would be more expensive inclusive all costs.

To address the other question, I didnít dig thoroughly regarding the J availability. I tried to book cash and the website did not offer me any J availability. However, when I booked Y and upgraded, there were no hiccups
