Award ticket -- changing classes

Can someone please provide me with guidance in regards to award travel? I am looking to book an award ticket from YVR to HNL on April 21. Currently, the only coach awards are full flex at 35,000 for one way travel. First is 75000 miles. If I book the coach award at full flex 35000 miles and first class saver becomes available before my travel date, can I switch classes? If so, will there be a fee?

It is a new award, i.e., old award redeposited, new award issued.
