One of the smaller details of the changes announced at JetPrivilege yesterday, was the going away of the Convenience Fees on award tickets.
Convenience Fees really is the fee charged for being able to book a ticket sitting in your bed in your pajamas really, and an easy way to pass on the cost of using a credit/debit card or another payment instrument to the passenger. Though I wonder why does Jet Airways charge it per passenger and per sector, because it is no fault of the passenger if the airline does not offer a direct flight to a remote airport, lets say DED in India.
Anyhow, as per JetPrivilege, there is no convenience fee applicable for award bookings made online (www.jetairways.com) from February 3, 2015 onwards.
This should help people like me who are in a quandary sometimes about keeping or cancelling award tickets! Good riddance!
Do you stand to benefit from this Convenience Fee Withdrawal from JetPrivilege award tickets?
