LH EQM quandry

I purchased a ticket soon after the * Alliance transition that included going MAA-FRA-IAH on LH (via CO.com with CO flight numbers). As you may recall, right after the transition the EQM percentages shown during booking were not reliable, so I assumed that the 0% that it was showing me at the time was incorrect and I'd get 100%. Well it turns out that I'm only going to get 50% as I'm in the highest fare class that only gets 50%. Obviously this is a lot of EQMs to give up. What are my options here? Can I beg and plead and perhaps they'll give them to me? Can I buy-up the one fare class to get the higher level of EQMs? Am I totally out of luck?
