Jet Airways and Delta are now making a new partnership at London Heathrow, along with Virgin Atlantic. This expands the Jet Airways partnership for the Americas across Delta / KLM / Air France / Virgin Atlantic. Great news for the flyers who shuttle half way across the globe then.
Jet Airways is moving to launch an A330 flight between Mumbai and Singapore again, after a while of operating it as a narrowbody flight. To mark the launch of the new A330 flights, they are offering double JPMiles to everyone who flies the flights between June and August 2016. Registration is required. Check in to find out the details
JetPrivilege has 30 partner airlines around the world where you can redeem your JPMiles, and now they are giving us advance notice of how we will need more miles as of April 1, 2016 for most of these redemptions.
Check-in to find out more details and act to use the old award chart.
25% Bonus JPMiles are being offered all through October 2015 to apply for the Jet Airways American Express Co-branded Platinum credit card. That means you get 12,500 JPMiles for signing on, apart from a free ticket code which is all inclusive in your INR 5,000 plus taxes price.
Credit Cards play a huge role in earning miles in the current scenario around India. Here are all the credit cards I am spending on currently, along with my rationale for each of the credit cards. Have a look.
American Express has been offering the Jet Airways co-branded credit card since a few years now. This month, they are running a promotion where you get bonus JP Miles when you add supplementary card holders to your Jet co-brand card account. The details are here.
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…
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…
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…
