Using AF miles on a DL-booked, AF-operated flight

Hello!

This is a theoretical question, but if I had a DL-booked flight (006 ticket) operated by Air France, and I wanted to use my AF miles to upgrade, is this allowed without issue?

Hoping for people with personal experience in this to let me know,
thanks!!

Not sure in advance but can do at the airport - at least I know It worked on JFK-AMS with KL, would be surprised if it wouldn't work on AF.

Who did you ask at the airport, out of curiosity? Ticketing or check in?

I had basic economy but booked on DL stock to get more miles as FB member, at check in (Sky Priority counters) they said not available because of basic economy but at the gate I asked again, got many options to use miles and cash. Took only cash at that time as it was only about 300 EUR to AMS on Upper Deck.

Ah, thank you for this.
I did exactly the same thing you did (booked my AF-operated basic economy ticket on DL to get more miles) -- and flying in a few days. Was wondering about this
Appreciate it!
