Miles & copay upgrade question

I want to use the miles + copay option to upgrade my economy ticket to Business class from DFW-NRT(connection)-SGN. I have two questions for the AA experts.

1. The booking code for these two segments are V and S. Are they eligible for upgrade at all? AA.com states only Y or B eligible.

2. If my booking codes are eligible. The award chart only show from US to Japan for 25K miles + $350 copay. Does this means I will only get the DFW-NRT upgrade, but the NRT-SGN will not?

Thank you.

Yes,they are eligible

Correct as you can't upgrade on non-AA marketed/operated flights

Thank you.
I'd also suggest reading the FAQ at the top of the page. It has quite a bit of information about how upgrades work, including answers to questions like those above. It will answer questions you didn't even know you had.

Cheers.
