Jet Airways is upping the redemption game which they started a few years back, offering a 50% off on mileage redemption tickets across India for this quarter as of today.
For the past two years, Jet Airways offered a 20% off on mileage redemptions, if booked online, something they discontinued in April 2014. Now, for travel between July 7, 2014 to September 30, 2014, they are offering a 50% off for redemptions across their domestic sectors in economy and Premiere class if you choose to make the redemption online.
The promotion is valid for JP redemption bookings made between July 07, 2014 to July 21, 2014, only if you issue your tickets using the online redemption engine on www.jetairways.com. So, if you issued your tickets before this date, you don’t get the discount, but if you choose to cancel and rebook the tickets, you may get the discount (one can never be 100% sure an award ticket cancelled goes back into award inventory on cancellation). If you choose to cancel and rebook, remember, it would cost you 500 JP miles for the cancellation per passenger.
The inventory looks pretty good with this sale, and I am now seeing BOM-DEL flights for 5250 miles plus taxes/surcharge and BOM-GOI flights at only 2500 miles plus taxes, which is a steal!
