Confirm upgrade in PE and waitlist for J

I'm looking to use eupgrades on a 777 next week. I can confirm upgrade right now in PE but if I put in for an upgrade to J, I'd be waitlisted. Is it possible to do the confirmed PE upgrade and still waitlist for a J upgrade?

I believe the answer to this is no. Certainly not if you do it online anyway.

Unfortunately the AC system is incapable of handling two upgrade requests for the same flight.

The only workaround is to cancel your upgrade request (subject to your original Y booking class still being available), requesting an upgrade to J and then automatically being placed on the PE upgrade list should your upgrade to J not clear.

However, I would only do this if (1) the odds of the J upgrade clearing were decent and (2) the odds of the upgrade to PE clearing at the airport were close to 100%
