Not showing as Silver but need to Book another flight

Hi All,
I have just achived Silver status and despite my tier points reflecting this the app and website is still showing bronze. I understand it can take a few days to update to show silver. I need to book another flight quite urgently and would like to use the extra baggage you get with silver, as well as lounge access etc. My question is if I book now whilst my account shows bronze and my account then upgrades to Silver will my booking reflect the update and allow the extra baggage etc? Or do i need to wait until my account shows silver to book to get the benefits? I dont want to not get a place on the flight so would rather book now.

Thanks

You can book now and get Silver benefits when your status updates

You can go back in to your booking once Silver has been updated to your account and make your seat selections for free in line with your new Tier of membership.

Occasionally, the status wonít update in the booking when it has in the account; if that happens itís a case of delete and renter your BAEC details.

Your tier points reflect Silver status at 600+ points. I presume your 'Qualifying Flights' show 4. If not this may be why your account is still Bronze.
