Tampa with an F cabin

Flying to Tampa on Saturday in CW as the highest selling class available. Just booked today for a last minute business trip and there is hardly anything but a couple of middles available in the cabin - not ideal, but noticed that the clubworld cabin is starting row 10 finishing at 15 which is obviously odd for a 3 class service out of LGW - when do they decide to open the F cabin for GCH etc? Does it only happen if overbooked? Or at a certain time before departure?

Any info would be good as for the price paid, the seat chouce is less than desirable but book last minute this is what you get.

-72 usually, but only if loads require it: if everyone can fit easily into the smaller cabin with space left over it will remain unused for the flight.
Keep an eye on it, and ask at the check-in desk if it's not opened before then as they'll know if it needs to be and have the ability to move you if it does.

Thanks. Just logged in T-48 and the seat map now oddly has just row 2, with only forward facing seats but 8 across like CW and then the rest of the cabin starting at row 10?

Is this a bug or is this the F cabin opened up?
