Why would you only upgrade to PE and not BP?

I've never seen or heard of that bug before. An upgrade defaults to PE but you just need to click BP.

And if you get it wrong, which is all too easy to do, ring Air NZ and they can change it for you.

Cleared to BP from economy. 2 hours 20 prior to departure. Had checked in, agent waived the second bag fee and was told to check at the lounge at 7.30. Got callled in at 7.08 pm. Daughter got to spend time in the lounge as flight delayed 50 minutes. Good score and happy 19 year old.
