Upgrading using Ex platinum AA
I’m an Aussie living in the US and am always looking for decent priced flights.
Qantas is having a sale and they are offering LAX to SYD return for 2 people $1986.00 for a flight operated my AA. Where AA have the same flight for $2700
My question is if I book through Qantas on the AA operates flights there and back can I use my free executive platinum upgrade legs??
I have called both Qantas and AA and both don’t know. It’s so frustrating
Unfortunately, in order to upgrade American flights using American “instruments” (systemwides, miles, etc.), the ticket has to be issued on American ticket stock. If Qantas issues the ticket, it won’t be eligible for upgrade.
