    First time poster here. Im halfway through a trip that goes PHX-DFW-LIR (completed) but on the same itinerary is LIR-MIA-PHX. This was booked with Avios though BA on AA metal. We want to upgrade to business/first using out Avios on the MIA-PHX leg using more Avios. Is this possible or would we have to cancel and rebook?

    If canceling is the only option what is the penalty? Our flight is in 5 days.

    As long as you make the call to change and upgrade the return segments at least 24 hours before departure you should be able to update your award booking to business class from coach for the AA domestic segments as long as there is first/business award space available. They will charge you 2-3x miles depending on how the plane is configured and a $60/ticket award change fees (unless you have BA Gold status).
