Ru akl-sing-uk

Hi, about to book a flight from Auckland-Singapore-London. If I use my RU (Elite) from Premium Economy to Business will that give me the upgrade on the entire trip or just one of the legs? Thanks

RU/Oneup only applies to a single flight, not the whole ticket. So in your case just the AKL-SIN flight.

Nothing for second sector as not allowable under the Airpoints system. Can only use your RUs and Elite $AP Upgrades when ticketed by AirNZ and on an AirNZ aircraft.

Well, it is theoretically possible to seek a Star Alliance upgrade (on the SQ sector SIN-LHR), but these are a separate matter and require very expensive fare classes.

And a belated warm welcome to FlyerTalk

As others have said, just the first leg. In fact I've just booked a PE AKL-Singapore-London and trying to do the same, so if I don't get the Elite RU and you're flying on 8th July up the front, I'm going to send you rude messages on the seat messenger system

My understanding is on the SQ sector, you can not use mySQupgrade if the ticket is issued on 086 NZ stock.

PE is not upgradeable under Star Alliance agreement. Only high fare Economy and Business class.
