American's systemwide upgrades for hitting EP: Can I use them on other non-American oneworld flights? British Airways, Qatar, etc

If one segment of my flight is on AA and the other is on BA and if I've bought the ticket from AA, can I upgrade the AA segment only using systemwide upgrade?

like

@EY1 that's correct in my experience

like

No, has to be AA-marketed as well as operated (if you book an AA flight through JL's website you can't use it)

Partner flights are a great way to use miles though -- 70k business class awards to Asia on CX, JL, and QF

Cool! :D

Dammit... Was so hopeful about my QA flight. Both inbound and outbound have flights of 13hr and 9 hr

Yeah I made that mistake a couple times. This time I'm using a SWU on AA DFW-HKG (16.5 hrs) and miles on CX business class HKG-ORD (14.5 hrs) on the way back

Delta Gold Amex vs Alaska cards

Anyone have pros or cons of either? Found an offer for Alaska that has 60k + $100 statement credit + companion pass annually after $3k spend in 3 months. Delta Gold offer is as stated in their site. Preference would go to whichever one offers an instant card number to use, but I believe both of them do that.
