Before calling in to request the upgrade, I checked ExpertFlyer, and it showed J4 D4 I4 R1 for MEX-LIM. One hour after my call, I now see J3 D3 I3 R0.
Business Upgrade fare bucket is U. AFAIK R is not being used by LAN at all. In my experience using some availability tools there has been U available but on reality when calling LAN there is nothing available. This could be a POS related issue as well, since LAN is well known for varying availability based on your location
