Upgrade with miles different availability than normal award?

Hi,

just got off the phone with SEN Istanbul and learnt that the upgrade availability differs between a normal award.
Is that new? Always thought that whenever O is available you can grab it.

Yes, there are two shades of grey (since a few years) ... I or O being available for awards doesn't mean automatically that you can upgrade.

Does this also apply to upgrades with vouchers?
Trying to upgrade on OS from IAD to VIE with vouchers; from a V fare eco ticket, business is wide open with Z9 D9 C9 J9

Thanks,
DAvid
