One easy thing to try is clamp the front brake lever overnight. If there are any air bubbles in the system they should be compressed and in theory work their way to the highest point in the system - the master cylinder. Doesn't always work but the price is right.
My experience has been air enters the calipers more than it does the master cylinder due to miscommunication between the person squeezing the lever and the person opening the bleed screw. They do have bleed kits these days that make it a little easier.
