First Class upsell?

Taking my first American flight in decades and have paid for main cabin +, but was wondering if AA offers any upsell options for first class other than the fare difference. Day of travel?

Yes...check the App and/or booking in the website. There are usually offers for upgrades and they can vary from day to day (or even hour to hour).

Yes, you will be offered a buy up upgrade option almost immediately after purchase, just pull up your reservation online at aa.com or in the AA app. There are oodles of data points now in the master thread.

Upgrade Offer on App

Its not always less than just paying the fare difference.

I received an email, and when I clicked on it there was no upsell offer.

Check the app and there is usually a banner at the top you can click. Just be aware that if you chose to upgrade one leg and not the other, you will lost the option to upgrade the second leg.
