Apologies if this has been asked before, I tried searching but couldn't find my answer. I originally bought an economy ticket that I upgraded to business using money and miles. The ticket is now listed as R.
I was wondering if I can still apply a global premier upgrade to it to get first class?
R class isn't listed as not applicable on united page but it does say it's not applicable to award tickets, so I'm a little confused. Does any one know?

If you get offered a buy up to 1st, can you post it after that fact, what route and how much? Just curious. I am assuming if you use the self check-in kiosks at airport, it's more likely or has this also happened during on-line check-in as well?
By rule, it's not doable. Some here have been offered $$$ buyups on upgraded tickets, so that is possible. Don't count on it, however.
Do you remember the amount? It may have just been a buy up to a first fare, which isn't really an upgrade but more of a ticket change. Last month I was offered an $11,000 buy-up to Global First LAX-SYD, which I'm pretty sure was just the price of a new ticket sans what I had already paid.
