Pattern for Award Ticket Release

Does anyone know the pattern for releasing award tickets? I'm looking for something in early January. They currently have awards through Jan 1st, but haven't seen any additional dates added since last Friday? Do they do a weekly upate?

Wonder if there is some delay for the beginning for 2022. Seeing awards through dec 31, but nothing after.

If you are trying to book awards form ORD, the schedule may be working against you. I am seeing ORD-PTY operating only on Sunday.

The only day in January 2022 that is less than 330 days out is Sunday January 2. And I see no awards ORD-PTY on that day. It is not uncommon for airlines to block awards in the time immediately around Christmas and New Years Day. I would be concerned if you don;t see awards in a week or two.

Edit: I just checked the schedules from JFK and IAD. Both of them are Sunday only starting January 2022. I suspect that CM has not published the real schedule for early 2022 yet.

I'm looking for CTG>ORD via PTY on 1/2/22 (a Sunday). I see the flights for sale now, but not through United. May just take some time for those to update on United's site.

I haven't done a lot of UA award searches on CM so I can't answer this. But I have seen a lag or delay in seeing awards on other carriers. So it may be possible that you will see availability in flights and/or awards in a week or so.
