Upgrade Redemption Ticket

Hi All,

I checked in the pinned guide but wasn't sure of this scenario:

I have an economy redemption ticket on AA (paid with Avois). If I upgraded to business class with money at airport am I eligible for tier points for business class level? Or I get nothing?

Many thanks,
-X

You get awarded nada in this situation as tier points and avios are awarded based upon the underlying fare. If the original economy ticket is not eligible for earning either then any subsequent upgrade is also not eligible.

Airport upgrades on AA don't earn extra TPs on paid bookings, let alone redemptions sadly.

Alas, guess I'll slum it in economy then, thanks :-)
