"60 dollars seats are up for grabs from Manila to Seoul. Is it correct? not "for grabbing"? In this case, grabs is none?

Sixty dollar seats from Manila to Seoul are up for grabs. < This is correct. Up for grabs = A few are left (first come first serve) - or - The tickets are so inexpensive the first people to buy them will be very lucky - usually this means not many are availalbe for sale (not many are being sold). So HURRY! Buy now!
