It has always opened up at t-72 for non-gold selection before the flight for as long as I remember. Certain fare buckets (Y or J I think) also let you book the front rows.

Sorry, you are correct that it's 10k in Euro (or equivalent) you need to declare at. It's £1000 that you can be questioned over though and that is regardless of where you arrived from/are going to.
