You cannot upgrade an award ticket with Business Extra certs, miles/copay, SWUs, or anything else. Outside of the caveat below*, award tickets are not upgradeable, the only thing you can do is pay the higher mileage for a business class award (if it's available).

*EXPs can upgrade most award tickets within North America via the same UDU/500-mi. upgrade process as paid tickets, only with waitlist status behind other EXPs on paid tickets.
