No. AA doesn't release any valuable C space on long distance routes until 36-48 hours before departure and therefore makes it very hard to plan long-distance vacations (even if the seat map is empty...

On the one time this happened to me, they protected my Y-J SWU but told me I had to stay on AA metal and they couldn't book me in J on Cathay or JAL. They offered Y on Oneworld carriers or J on AA....

You cannot go from Y-->F using upgrade instruments. You can only be upgraded one cabin Y-->J or J-->F. In the rare instance, you can be double upgraded due to an oversell (e.g. I purchased a coach...
