And the 20% off on JetPrivilege redemptions continues

Jet Airways had brought out a fabulous redemption offer where they were inviting travellers to redeem JPMiles for 20% less on domestic legs. It is actually a very good offer, because this allows you to redeem a full-service 9W flight in economy for the same mileage as a redemption on a low-cost carrier on PremierMiles (i.e., BOM-DEL is 8,400 PM for an LCC, and 8,400 JPMiles for a 9W flight).

The promotion was valid for redemption and travel till December 30, 2012. Now, they are extending it to March 31, 2013. This might be a change for good, or a phase when Jet Airways is trying to encourage redemptions so that they can burn some miles off their balance sheet. I also see increased availability on domestic flights now a days, which means, 9W may be finally getting a bit serious about redemption options for their frequent flyers.

  1. Hi AJ,

    Any thoughts on Jet Airways doing away with Lounge access for their Silver card holders. With reduced frequent flyer benefits, I had stopped booking on Jet for some time now. This may prompt some more people to do that.
