TIming for prospective OLCI UGing on AF flight

I've got a AF flight coming up in a couple of months and are holding T fare tickets (fully refundable for some absurd reason). Haven't flown AF in the back and haven't UG'd since the KL YVR-OTP error fare, or the cheap-ish AF MAN-MEL.

Segment is LAX-PPT and I am hoping paid UGs are offered at check in. Since I have no status (but lots of miles - wasn't going to pay 160K for award seats though) and didn't want to prepay for assigned seats, I want to check in at T-24 to get decent seats. However the flight wouldn't have left CDG yet. Just wondering if timing makes any difference? Should I just log in periodically to check if UGs are being offered? If one has checked in and selected seats, can UGs still be offered later?

Yes, you can check regularly. UG proposals can appear, disappear and reappear. But the price can change also sometimes.
