Alitalia upgrades inventory? Which class?

Hello to everybody,

I did some research but I have still some doubts.
Does Alitalia uses the same award classes for upgrades?

My wife (Freccia Alata status) usually fly from GRU to FCO/FLR in Alitalia Premium Economy class and it really seems difficult/impossible to use miles for upgrading into Magnifica Class.
So I thought that I could use ExpertFlyer Pro Subscription to try to find Alitalia flight with upgrades possibilities.

Does anybody knows which class codes are used for Alitalia upgrade inventory?
Someone says "I" is the class to upgrade into, other says "Z" is the award class for business but it's also used for upgrades.

Any ideas?

Expertflyer customer assistance doesn't know and they answered to me: "That depends on if Alitalia uses the same award classes for upgrades, which some airlines do".

Remember you have to be booked in booking class P, not A

AFAIK there isn't usually trouble in finding availability, but maybe your flights have always been full.

In any case personally I find upgrades to be somewhat overpriced for what they're worth.

Thanks for the infos. Yes, she is in P class.

Do you, or anybody, know if we need to look for "I" business class inventory or "Z" ?

Z is the class for award business. I is the class for upgrades.
