While JetPrivilege is my go to mileage program in India, I am a bit surprised about how they can’t make up their mind on lounge access. A few years ago, they used to give Lounge Access to a +1 on a Jet Airways flight for Platinum Members. Then it stopped. Then it came back exactly a year ago. And now it is gone again.
Here is an email announcement sent out to Platinum members just a while ago.
So, essentially, your +1 lounge access is going away as of February 1, 2016. And I can’t figure why, because the economy is doing okay, Jet is now under the tutelege of Etihad, and even the Etihad Guest program provides for +1 Lounge Access for their own Platinum members, and some of their other Etihad Guest Partners member airlines are also offering a +1 privilege. I don’t quite like this change.
What do you think about this upcoming change to Jet benefits?
