If by tomorrow you mean departing 9 December, then BA12 is fairly well sold. There are about a dozen available seats, but after staff standbys I would expect that service to go out fairly busy. On the upper deck there are about 4 aisle seats left and a similar number of window seats. There are also about 6 Theoretical Blocks for status passengers, not all of which will survive the next 24 hours. The main deck is, as you suggested, more busy, with just 2 aisle seats and about 8 TS blocks. 38D might, might, give you an empty seat next to you.
