Does LH restrict award availability on weekends

Trying to book 2 first class award tickets using UA miles. However, there is zero availability during saturday and sunday despite the cabin having more than 6 seats available for sale. Is this normal?

LH only release F award seats to partner programs at T - 14 & obtaining 2 seats would be challenging anyway, LH prioritise availability for M&M members.

Route can make a difference & you donít know how many pax are on a waitlist for upgrades & LH revenue management have the data for the last minute bookings on the route.
