I'd suggest either your status isn't high enough or the flight is full. You mentioned July. Is it in school holidays?

Watching most QF flights this does seem to be the case these days. Is it the same when you try to pay for seat allocation? (Assuming you’re in economy class?). Or you might need to wait for T-80.....

Sounds like the most logical reason. Holding seats for the higher fare buckets I would imagine and drip feed them out to the market.
