booking class for upgrade seat on AA & best J cabin on AA

sorry if this has been asked, and I searched but couldn't find it.

What is the upgrade booking class if I want to use miles to upgrade flights from yyz - HKG or yyz-pvg?

Can I use miles to upgrade AA codeshare flights with CX?

And, which route has the best J cabin to either HKG or PVG on AA?

AA doesn't fly to HKG and you can't use AA miles to upgrade non-AA metal, so no upgrading CX flights to HKG.

AA upgrades from coach to business on AA metal requires C class inventory.

CX business class is superior, IMO, to AA's current business class. Better seats and better service.

Assuming you are using AA miles for the upgrade, you only have one choice, and that's ORD-PVG. Otherwise, the closest you can get is Japan, and you'll still have to get to PVG on someone else's plane where you cannot upgrade. Only AA metal is upgradable.
