What is R class on AA?

Just flew from MIA-PTY in J and my seat mate had R class on his boarding pass? Is it linked to upgrades or mileage?
On the return to MIA we had a fantastic view of the Panama Canal.
First time to Panama and I though it was great, also AA crew on the way out were first class!

Sticker/mileage upgrade on 2-class flights where the front cabin is J (Central America, Mexico, Canada, Caribbean etc.)

I got an op-up out of LHR a couple weeks ago (Y -> J) and my BP said "R" class.

R class...pity, for a second I thought AA had shaken the mothballs off of (or pieced back together) BA's Concorde fleet.
