No.

I class is the only class to check SAUA upgrade for BR using UA miles.

BR upgrade inventory is Z class. This includes EVA own mileage upgrade and electronic certificate. But it doesnít make all of the Z inventory for SAUA upgrade. Those are I bucket (which is subset of Z). Thus there are cases where Z class is available but SAUA wonít clear.

I did a demo of this last year at a Chinese travel group on FB. EF showed Z only but no I. SAUA didnít work.

If I class is available but Aeroplan canít open the ticket online. Just call. Please make sure itís per segment.
