Do economy reward seats run out?

I've been looking for flights from Tokyo to Chiang Mai on the 09/02/20 (after 19:00) or early on the 10/02/20 (before 0200) and noticed the prices are roughly 450-500 with checked in luggage with competing budget airlines with fairly long layovers (> 5 hours).

I noticed if I redeem an economy class flight for Thai Airways via Krisflyer points it roughly equates to $500 (25000 kris flyer and ~150 AUD). This will also be a full service flight with layovers of 2-3 hours. I don't really want to pull the trigger yet as I'm waiting for prices to lower.

Anyone know if economy reward seats with partner airlines likely fill up?

A bit surprised you can see a Thai flights that far out. The short answer is yes, Thai in the past were really good at making seats available but have restricted considerably more recently.

Damn, the Tokyo to BKK leg with Thai Airways is no longer available. :(

Will be hopping on the All Nippon (TYO > BKK) then Thai Airways (BKK > CNX) from there.

The OP was after economy class tickets - I haven't seen those restricted on TG. First and business class only seem to be available 14 days out now.
