Aa upgrades booked with partner
Ok so I am EP with aa and looking to fly to Asia. I have a several USA flights on the journey and was wondering if I will still be on the upgrade list (domestically) if I book with Cathay pacific and use my Aadvantage # in the booking?
I believe so, yes, especially if you’re booking with an AA flight number and not a codeshare flight number.

But I take “booking with Cathay” to mean it [B]is[/B] a CX codeshare ticket. Then the answer is probably not, but your best chance is try it leg by leg at the gate. I believe they can enter your number for the upcoming flight without it changing for subsequent legs.
[USER=4556]@OCTinPHL[/USER] Not really. You can include flights on AA on a CX ticket. If you’re given an AA flight number in your confirmation, then its not a codeshare. If your ticket gives you a CX flight number with 4 digits for the AA operated flight, that’s the codeshare flight number.
Here’s HKG-JFK-GIG where the JFK-GIG has a CX flight number but is actually operated by AA. CX7712 is the codeshare flight number
Here is HKG-LAX-AUS, with the LAX-AUS segment is sold by Cathay with an AA flight number – not a codeshare
While Cathay can sell you AA tickets in conjunction with a flight on CX, flights that have/dont have codeshare probably have different revenue agreements between the two airlines.
