    So I'm traveling back from Asia to the US over the holidays but had a question about AA's 500 mile upgrades. Can those only be used on AA metal or can they be used on partner flights as well? I'm looking at an AA codeshare flight operated by JAL and would be overjoyed if I could buy an economy ticket and upgrade with the miles. Is this possible?

    If not there appears to be decent availability on an AA flgith from Tokyo to LAX. How likely am I to clear a 500 mile upgrade between January 5-7?
