Purchase Business Upgrade from Economy Ticket

Hi all,

I've purchased an economy class ticket with ThankYou points on Airberlin. Today I saw a great deal on business class fares for the exact route I'm on and wanted to pay the fare difference if possible between what I paid and the new business class fare. However, since it was a non-refundable ticket, the ThankYou points travel agent said they couldn't change the ticket and let me pay for an upgrade to business. I called AirBerlin and they said they can't change the ticket because it was booked via a travel agent. Why is it so hard to give AirBerlin more money!

Does anyone know if there are any other options to pay for business class? Can I try to buy it at the gate?

Thanks!
