Hi guys,
I booked some long haul flights with Air New Zealand in economy class, entered my frequent flyer number from another star alliance airline and at the seat selection screen I noticed on the Tasman leg I was able to book a frequent flyer seat in the premium economy area for no additional payment. I figured since I could select it I just happened to get lucky and snag a good seat, however I thought I should check that I am not going to get to the airport and get shamefully bumped from the seat going through the gate and then bumped from the flight completely because I selected a seat I shouldn't have and the flight is full. Does anybody have any info on what is happening? It seems such a good score that it may not be as it seems.
Thanks for any advice!

You're ok, you are actually entitled to those seats due to status.

It's a known benefit on the Trans-Tasman legs. You'll be fine.

Thanks for the replies. The concern I have is that I don't have Air NZ frequent flyer and I only just started a star alliance program because I'm moving to a country with no oneworld domestic carrier so I was surprised I was able to book it being on the bottom. Thought it was worth a check but if you guys think it's just a lucky score I wont change back to the regular seat.
Cheers
