Airlines do that from time to time. They can withdraw award seats all of the sudden at their discretion. It’s part of the game.
Flights were VA to LAX then Delta from LAX, so no AC. I realise it's the "game" but for weeks there has been plenty of availability across many days int he week, but suddenly just as we are approaching having the dates I want available, everything has gone! I thought maybe someone would know something more than the generic...
might be due to Virgin Australia's current LAX delays?
VA isn’t suppose to be generous anyway. Never seen any J seats to LAX more than 7 days out.

i must be super lucky to score a 1A on VA2 LAX~SYD in early Feb. It is limited but definitely possible.

I've found early Feb is the easiest time to grab a business class reward on VA. Note that your seat assignment may well be moved for a paying biz customer on that flight. I've been moved back when booked on points and also moved up (without asking) when paid.
