  1. Yes, Premiermiles cannot be converted to JPMiles.
    However, in case you want to use Premier miles you can do as follows.
    1) Book JetAirways or Jet Konnect ticket on Jet Airways website using premier miles card.
    2) Once the transaction appears on your unbilled amount, call premier miles customer care and ask them to redeem premier miles against Jet Airways transaction. They will make the transaction as follows : 1 Rupee = 2 Premier miles.
