Upgrade Vouchers good with AC?

I am planning to visit Canada this winter and was wondering if the Gold upgrade vouchers are good for flights operasted by Air Canada with a BD flight number. Has anybody tried this?

Thanks for the help in advance

Given that they exclude their use from their own transatlantic services, I doubt you'll be allowed to use them on a codeshare...

No codeshares.

Also, I thought vouchers were technically usable transatlantic for economy to new economy but hardly ever required since Golds unofficially got the upgrade anyway.

Almost certainly not. I'm *G at AC and I have a hell of a time using the vouchers they send out. That said, I have a number of vouchers which allow upgrades from full Y to J. They are intended for AC Prestige (*S) and Elite (*G) members, but I if you have BD*G you may be able to blag your way on. A LH SEN (*G) friend of mine regularly does this with vouchers from me.

Let me know if you want to give it a try.
