AA does this frequently with YUPs during irregular ops, or if they blow a connection. No compensation, no nothing. It's not just US that does this, but pretty much everyone.

It absolutely is WRONG, because if you price "discounted/restricted F" on the website, you get an A/YUP/QUP, etc. Bad, bad business.

Thus the upgraded fare code wasn't allowed by my travel agency and its computer apparently kicked me back to coach. I have no idea how I even lost my coach seat, but now it is fixed. Lesson learned- do NOT upgrade on a business trip ticket until the ticket has been issued.
Odd. Only because on my particular corporate engine (saabre hooked, somehow) US (and specifically the CP desk whence I was still CP) could not upgrade me or provide upgraded seats until the reservation ticketed (which sometime took a while).

Glad to hear it worked out.
