Using AA voucher to upgrade AS-operated service

I am due to fly MIA-LAX on AA 2572, which is operated by AS.

I booked and paid for Coach and was perfectly happy with this.

However, due to (long boring story omitted) I am now the proud holder of an AA Transportation Voucher to the value of GBP 129.00 (I am based in the UK).

I believe that it might be possible to buy an Airport Upgrade to First Class shortly before my flight, subject of course to availability...

So, a few questions arise:

Does anyone know if the voucher would be valid for this purpose ?
Do you think it would matter that it's denominated in British Pounds ?
Would I able to do this online or would I need to go to the AA (or AS ?) desk at MIA ?

Thanks in advance for your advice
