One AA rep I spoke to did say the fare basis was KQ???? rather than KUPP26T. It could well be the case that KUPP26T fares can only be booked by AA.
If the fare basis begins KQ, then it would definitely seem to be of the non-upgradeable K variety. There are so many different sub fares it can be mind boggling at times.

Expedia may be able to sell KUP's. It certainly offered YUP's in the past but even though, a mixed class through booking may prove too hot for it to handle.
