Here is the text from EVA's website (In reference to U/Z bookings):

"The mileage record with cabin class upgrade is based on the purchased fare class and can be credited to the Infinity MileageLands membership account only. It is not applied to transfer to other partner airlines."

Is my only option to credit to MileageLands?

Appreciate the help!
Quick question. When did you book the flight and when did you request the upgrade?
