Does ANA ever open up last minute award availability?

I'm booked on a flight for early October on ANA, BKK to NRT. Currently I'm in X class (via Air Canada).

In my experience, some *A airlines (like LH) seem to open up a lot of award availability near the date of the flight if they have extra seats. Does this tend to happen on ANA / do I have a chance of getting I space?

In my experience, it's highly dependent on what's available, but the only two times I have had an award booking clear waitlist was about 10 days before departure. Whatever that info is worth. I basically don't even bother with waitlisting anymore, they usually never clear.
