Some of us use ExpertFlyer or other tools to peek and see if there is an upgradable seat, and get confirmed upgrades when we fly, btw. I can also see AA's position - a free upgrade will not be granted for the absolutely lowest fares.
Yep, the lowest fare is not the lowest upgradable fare. AA should enhance their web page with 'using SWU' so that ppl that are trying to upgrade don't get caught up in Q class. By the time I received my upgrades, I was at about 3 weeks away from my flight --> hence I guess the next level fare was all gone.
