Yes, around 3-4 days (I'd say 72-80 hours) before departure, there can be a spike in reward availability closer to departure. Have done this myself, booking Emirates business class using Qantas Points six months out, finding first class rewards on the same flight a few days before travel, and calling QFF to change the booking from business to first class: cost was the usual change fee in points (6,000 points or so?) plus the difference in points between the business and first class rates.
