Award flight on UA in C

I am not able to see any availability for UA flights that are not in Y. Tried multiple TATL and domestic routes.
Anyone else have this problem?

I can see availability on EWR-LHR-FRA in C on UA/LH for today. So it's not a general issue.

UA does not release a lot of C redemption to *A. Some people say that availability is a bit better at Aeroplan and M&M for UA C seats. The other *A airlines can hardly offer any seat in UA C if not last minute.

Probably, they fill their planes with cash upgrades and the many tools their own FFP offers to upgrade

I was able to booked EWR-TXL for late october at the beginning of october, which I changed to EWR-LHR about a week before departure (both in C). Read somewhere that UA C seats only are available on other *A airlines if UA releases saver awards in their own system. I guess chances are better if itís both during low season and quite close to departure?
