The fare difference will always be available so long as it was bought from BA direct. It's just that if a POUG shows up it kind of hides it in MMB (and it would be fairly confusing as you have seen, fare difference upgrades can also change some of the ticket's other conditions relating to refunds and so on). If you call then they can quote over the phone. If the POUG goes then the fare difference upgrade will probably surface again. AUPs appear to be very available at the moment, and they are a similar cost to POUGs and can be for one, two or even three cabin upgrades.

It should be pointed out that POUGs and AUPs are more expensive than the cheapest direct purchase, they aren't quite the bargain they are made out to be, but that may be a hypothetical point.
