Subject: Upgrades and packages
Graziella, I fly American exclusively and we've always been able to use miles to upgrade - even on packages or any of their specials. We flew American a couple of years ago on a weekend special just before Christmas for $219 roundtrip and they were most happy to let us use miles to upgrade to business class. Also, with American now, you can upgrade just one segment of your flight - say, if you just want to use the miles for the Europe to USA portion of the flight, you can do that with fewer miles.
