Airport upgrade - how are miles credited?

Sometimes I upgrade from D to F (LX or LH) at the airport, but looks pretty random how miles are credited:

For LH it seems I often get F miles, independent of where I upgrade (at airport, over phone or bid).
For LX it seems I rarely get F miles...? Especially miss the HON miles :-)

Airport upgrades= only seat upgrade no new fare class. Online or via the phone= usually get a new ticket which means new fare class

Thanks! Any possibility that they issue new ticket also at the airport?
Some airport upgrades are better than phone/online... :-)

Not trying to hijack the thread, but, similar question: I did manage to change my paid ticket from "P" to "A" (upgraded using miles). I see the reservation shows "A" confirmed, .. miles deducted from account etc.. but when I try to print a new receipt/etix I still see the "P" listed. Should the "A" be listed instead and a new Etix issued? specially since the flight still weeks away and the upgrade cleared so quickly? Also, what miles will I get from this? P or A ? This thread made me think about it... (specially since was not a last minute airport upgrade...) thanks in advance...

If you upgrade with miles, you will get credit based on the original paid booking class, i.e. P.
