    it seems there is never much availability for UA flights when trying to use MM. Is that the case for others or am I missing a trick ?

    Have you verified that UA has partner availability for your searches? You could check Aeroplan or ANA.

    Good idea - I always check UA first, but ANA is a good idea. Thanks

    There does always seem to be availability close in. Any idea how far out UA releases capacity to partners ?

    Are you looking for premium cabin or economy? Whenever I've used partner miles for premium cabin space from overseas to the US, UA typically only makes economy available for my connections within the US.
