Smile Transatlantic Biz availability trends for Aer Lingus

Does anyone know what the current trends are for Aer Lingus releasing award availability in Biz?

Two weeks ago I saw 2 biz seats available for a flight i needed (JFK->Dub) in June. I booked one seat with BA avios and then the other availability dried up for BA. I saw availability was still there for Aer Lingus' own program, but I stubbornly waited to book the 2nd seat since I had BA Avios and wanted to avoid the higher taxes on Lingus. Long story short, the availability for this flight went away entirely by the next day.

Trip doesnt leave for ~6 months so I'm not in a rush, but if Lingus doesn't add extra award space I will probably have to look elsewhere.

In so far as there is such a thing as "BA Avios", open an Aer Club account, and transfer your "BA Avios" across. Then book from your Aer Club Avios log in.

When I checked a few days ago, MIA-DUB was wide open in Sept and Oct 2018. Weirdly DUB-MIA was almost non-existent. Even on the day that a flight became available for booking, the MIA-DUB opened up, but the DUB-MIA did not. I ended up changing plans somewhat and booking DUB-MSY via LHR on BA using AA miles.
