AA flyer upgraded on BA flight

Purchased BA WTP LAX-LHR-BCN. Flew on BA 232 on Dec 3, 2019 and received a $999 USD per person offer for Club World. Politely declined.

As we were boarding, the automatic gate ticket checkers wouldn't let us through, indicating that we needed to visit the gate agent. Thinking the worst, we trudged up to the agent... where we both (2) received complimentary upgrades to Club World for the LAX-LHR leg!

I have AA PlatPro, and thus OW Sapphire, but no BA status, didn't realize that we would even be in the running?! Very nice surprise. Now I've been looking for the priority thread, both in BA and AA forums... and on the BA website but no joy yet. And I'd certainly like to be in the know and repeat whatever we did right, going forward! Could anyone please link BA's prioritization of OW travelers for their international travel? Thanks!
