Upgrading with Avios
I have a bit of a complicated question. I have a ton of TY points from the Citi Prestige that I’d like to use up before I cancel next year due to the benefit changes. I’d like to use the points for RT tickets from BOS to LHR on BA metal through AA so I can get the 1.6 cent per point conversion.
My question is that if I buy the tickets via TY through AA, in the appropriate fare class, can I then upgrade using Avios from another account pending award availability?
Generally not. If the tickets are issued through AA, you can only use AA miles to upgrade, and vice versa.
