Air Italy: transfer Avios from BA? Points to upgrade?

I bought my partner a r/t biz class ticket on Air Italy (ex-Meridiana), and now I want to join him on one leg, but the fare has gone up. Considering booking with miles, if available, or upgrading with miles--does Air Italy offer this option? I'm not seeing this on the website (only a purchased upgrade to gold status...which I don't think comes with flight upgrades?).

Also, is it possible to transfer Avios from BA to Air Italy? Redemption prices are better on Air Italy (60K o/w JFK-MXP, plus fees, presumably, though it doesn't say, vs BA's ~70K, last I looked). Again, I've poked around the websites, but I'm not really seeing anything. Air Italy's site is not...robust.

Thanks.

You canít transfer avios from BA to Air Italy, but you can book Air Italy flights using avios. You simply do this through the BA Executive Club - log in, do a flight search and if there is availability it will show online.

Thanks--good to know I can't transfer, so I'll stop driving myself crazy looking!

I was aware of the BA award option. It's just pricier than Air Italy's own chart.
