International Upgrade Mysteries

Jump to last reply

At the risk of sounding like a whiner (actually I am more of a 'winer'), I am curious if anyone can shed some light on the mystery of international upgrades. I am AA Platinum and a Million Miler...hoping to upgrade to biz class on a DFW to CDG flight on Wednesday (using miles plus the copay).

There are as of today, 11 open seats in biz class. As Platinum, I supposedly have a 72 hour window on upgrades. Sadly, no upgrade yesterday...none today. So I became curious and checked the same flight departing tomorrow (Tuesday) and it also has 11 open seats. The flight leaving today at 5:05 ALSO shows 11 open seats, at least it did an hour ago.

So my question is, at what point is there a determination by AA that some of those open seats are available for upgrades? Is there some magic formula?
