What does an upgrade of one cabin class mean?

It means you can upgrade from Economy to Premium Economy or from Premium Economy to Business Premier™. If you are in Economy you can also submit an offer to experience Economy Skycouch™ if you do not wish to upgrade cabin class.

How can I make an offer for Economy Skycouch™?

If you have a booking of one or two people, you are now able to make an offer to experience Economy Skycouch.

To do this, you can make an offer for a Premium Economy upgrade. Once submitted, you will have the option to make an offer for Economy Skycouch. In the event there is no availability to fufill your upgrade to Premium Economy, we will consider your offer for Economy Skycouch.

Alternatively, if you do not want to make an offer for Premium Economy, you can submit an offer to experience Economy Skycouch by selecting "Skycouch" as the Upgrade Type when submitting your OneUp.

Please note that bookings of two people are submitting to occupy the skycouch together. Bookings with one passenger will be making an offer to have the whole skycouch allocated to themselves.

Multi-sector flights

For these flights you'll need to choose one sector for each offer you make. For example, on an Auckland to London flight you can make an offer for Auckland to Los Angeles or Los Angeles to London. If you want to make two offers, one for each sector, you can.

Elite, Gold and Silver Airpoints™ members

To recognise your status, we'll upweight your OneUp offer by the following amount:

  • Elite - 50%
  • Gold - 30%
  • Silver - 10%
