I have checked your account, and it was credited correctly for your
upgraded travel. You receive AAdvantage®️ mileage credit for the class of
service on which your fare is based rather than the cabin in which you
are seated. The booking code for your ticket reflects a Premium Economy
Class fare, so you earn miles at the standard rate. Bonus miles for
First and Business Class are only earned when members purchase premium
fares; not when they utilize an upgrade award. I'm sorry to disappoint
If you purchased Premium Economy, and then used Miles + Co-Pay to upgrade to business, then yes, you should receive EQMs, EQDs, and RDMs based on the Premium Economy ticket.

I think it's interesting that Delta seems to have copied AA on this front; usually it's AA copying everyone else...
Premium Select fare shenanigans
