Flight still under TA control after first segment

Iíve a LHR > JFK return booked by my corporate travel agent. Iíve flown the outbound leg, and for some reason it is still under TA control for changes?

Any reason for this? I did a AUP for the outbound at LHR, but Iíve done this before and usually once Iíve landed in JFK itís under BAís control (I.e. I can get upgrade pricing, upgrade offers etc).

I've made changes to a similar booking before (only a few weeks ago), after flying the first sector. Ticket issued by TA, but changes made by BA agent at T5 (with associated change fees etc) for the rest of the itinerary.

Who is telling you it is under TA control? I find the airport agents tend to be best at this type of thing, although I'm not sure I remember dealing with this situation via BA call centre.

Likely it still wont work online but could potentially be changed via contact centre once outbound is travelled. Still depends on whether the ticket is a deal ticket which is a BT/IT fare, as if this the case BA would be unable to change the ticket at any point. If it is a published fare BA should be able to change the ticket.
