Jet Airways offering 2x-3x miles between Delhi and Goa/Hyderabad

One of the strategies Jet Airways used to protect its market on the Delhi-Mumbai, Mumbai-Ahmedabad and Delhi-Ahmedabad sectors, which were launch sectors for Vistara, was to offer 2x base miles on these sectors in Economy, and 3x base miles in Business Class. This promotion comes to an end on March 31, 2015. A few days ago, Vistara announced their flights to Goa and Hyderabad. At that time, I wondered when would Jet Airways be reacting by announcing more miles on these segments, and they did do this yesterday, however, they made me wait for over a month! Anyhow, just last evening I got word that JetPrivilege will be offering bonus miles for travel from 18 March 2015 to 31 May…

This JetPrivilege upgrade is so cool!

JetPrivilege, the frequent flyer program for Jet Airways, has been in upgrade mode over the past 6 months. They did a few awesome (couple not so awesome) things over the months: More benefits for Platinums, including a +1 guest at the lounge Convenience fee goes away on online redemptions Extended validity for your miles if you have a Jet cobranded card Introduced mileage earning for kids, and also upgrade mileage burning for kids Launched family mileage pooling Enhanced domestic redemptions and removed fuel surcharges Enhanced mileage earning but my favourite one is where they made it easier to become or retain an elite tier by offering higher tier points on more expensive tickets. Now, lets come to the point. This…

JetPrivilege offering 20% bonus to convert Card & Hotel points to miles

c JetPrivilege, Jet Airways’ frequent flyer program, runs a campaign to offer you a bonus for all your points (credit card points etc.) to be converted into miles. In 2013, they offered a 20% bonus on converting hotel points to miles, apart from a credit card conversion bonus of a similar amount. They’d have run higher promotions in the past, and in 2012 it used to be 25% bonuses.  The promotion is back, albeit for a limited time, for 2015, and this time around, JetPrivilege is offering 20% extra miles for your conversion of points to JP miles. The conversion bonuses run between March 2, 2015 to March 31, 2015. Which means any request that gets completed within this time…

Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege program is making it easier for you to become an elite!

It is Friday evening, and that time of the day when loyalty programs roll out enhancements. But this time they are real enhancements! One of the programs under restructuring, and in final laps of restructuring perhaps is the Jet Airways loyalty program JetPrivilege. Over the past 6-8 months they have launched a lot of changes, including the ability to earn higher JP Miles for flights. Coming to today’s changes, JetPrivilege is making some solid enhancements in my view. Until now, to qualify for a tier upgrade, you either could earn it by doing segments (earn tier points) or by miles. In terms of tier points, you had a very flat structure in terms of earning, you got 1 tier point…

When is JetPrivilege announcing bonus miles on Delhi-Hyderabad and Delhi-Goa then?

One of the tools in Jet Airways’ armour against upstart airline Vistara is a well-established loyalty program JetPrivilege. Jet Airways is offering 2x base miles for economy cabin and 3x base miles for business cabin flights on BOM-DEL-BOM, BOM-AMD-BOM and DEL-AMD-DEL segments, the 3 routes that Vistara is flying at the moment. Now, Vistara has started to accept reservations between Delhi-Goa-Delhi and Delhi-Hyderabad-Delhi for flights starting later this month. The question then is, will Jet Airways counter these routes with a promotion as well, or not? Interesting to me because Jet does not operate direct flights between Delhi and Goa anyways.

Convenience Fees going away on Jet Airways redemptions booked online

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…

JetPrivilege upgrades restructured for good!

Last year, Jet Airways’ loyalty program JetPrivilege restructured their earning and burning structure, and did away with fuel surcharges on award tickets. On the back of a higher mileage required for an award ticket in premium cabins (a BOM-BRU business class o.w. moved from 54,000 JP Miles to 85,000 JP Miles, but no fuel surcharge now), there was a sweet spot that existed, called mileage upgrades. You earn miles for your ticket, and you pay lower number of miles for your upgrade as compared to a business class redemptions, hence it was a great deal, since you really had a much less net outflow in terms of number of miles for a premium cabin travel. The standard benchmark for an…

JetPrivilege offering 2-3x bonus miles Jan-Mar 2015

Jet Airways clearly has a great tool in its fight against all the incoming new carriers, and it is called JetPrivilege. So yesterday, when Vistara announced the launch of their operations on the Delhi-Mumbai, Delhi-Ahmedabad and Mumbai-Ahmedabad sectors as of January 9, 2015, Jet Airways hit back with some nice goodies to tell them who is the boss! Yes, Jet Airways flights on all these segments will earn double bonus miles in economy on all the sectors listed above, and triple in business class. These miles are apart from the tier and cabin bonuses for both these airlines. All flights booked before the promotion launch date also qualify. Join over 4000 people who check-in daily to find out about the…

JetPrivilege extending validity of miles for co-branded card holders

I just received a wonderful surprise from JetPrivilege in my email, something that maybe a lot of you would be receiving shortly or have already received as well. JetPrivilege just sent out an email stating that the validity of all my JetPrivilege miles was being extended from 3 years to 5 years. I wasn’t ever worried about their expiry due to my JetPrivilege Platinum status, but seems like I have more time now even in case I don’t have Platinum status anymore. The email states that you need to hold at least one active co-branded credit card to get yourself the 2 year extension of your mileage balance expiry. This means not just holding the card but having made at…
