  1. Hi,

    How do I go about claiming the tickets based on the spends made so far? I could not find any information about how this is to be done.



    • @Vineet you’ll have to head to your nearest AI office with boarding passes of all your tickets for that!

  2. One question I had is whether you become “eligible” on booking the tickets or you need to “fly” in order to become eligible?
