Over the past few days, JetPrivilege has been working on multiple changes for revamping the program, after their newfound status as an independent loyalty program, and their majority control by Etihad.

The first two phases of these changes included tinkering with the earn rate, which got better in some situations, and the burn rate, which got massively devalued for international premium cabins. Then, yesterday JetPrivilege launched the family pooling concept, where you could pool miles from your family members.

One of the small fine print changes they did not announce in big bold letters but slipped in along was the change for children redemptions. Earlier, a redemption for a child ticket, for a kid up to 11 years in age, would be 50% the miles required for an adult ticket. But since October 21, 2014 (yesterday), they’ve moved the requirements for children to 100% of adult ticket mileage requirements. This is valid for redemptions on Jet Airways and all partner airlines as well.

I’d say this is a devaluation for those of you who were given no notice to book up tickets for your families with kids, but I’d imagine for Jet Airways every ticket redeemed is perhaps a seat for which they could not charge revenue rates, where they charge revenue rates for an adult anyways.

Again, a positive move for JetPrivilege, a negative move for the customer, but my only problem with them is that they did it yet again, without notice.

A few days ago, JetPrivilege and Etihad Guest announced that they were going to offer double miles for flights taken across the Etihad Airways network, for flights till December 15, 2014.

Now, Jet Airways has initiated a new promotion, where you can get double JP Miles or double Etihad Guest miles for flying on the international network of Jet Airways as well.

It does look like a very good promotion, because off the bat, Jet Airways is offering double JP Miles for anyone who books their tickets over the next fortnight, and travels till December 15, 2014 on the International network of Jet Airways. Just make sure you register here.

On top of that, if you fly Business Class or First Class on the Jet Airways network, you are getting a double on your cabin bonuses as well, and double tier miles. This is how the mileage would be credited.

The cherry on the cake is the opportunity to win 100,000 JP Miles. Ten people who book and fly under this promotion, will also get a 100K JP Miles from a lucky draw.

This is one generous promotion I say, and you can also get double Etihad Guest miles if you like to earn Etihad Guest miles in stead of Jet Airways miles.

Etihad is trying to be a prominent player in India, and in this regard, they are working out as hard as they can to get an uptick on traffic from India. Considering they now majorly own the JetPrivilege program, they in a way, JP Miles are also a sort of Etihad currency.

Etihad is offering double miles in the JetPrivilege program, or the Etihad Guest program, if you book your tickets between September 22 and October 6, 2014 and travel between September 23, 2014 to December 15, 2014. To participate in this promotion, you need to register beforehand using your Etihad/JP number, at this link.

The promotion is valid for Etihad Airways flights on any destination on the Etihad Global Network, only when booked as a revenue ticket and as an Etihad flight (not as a codeshare). Applicable for travel in the Economy, Business and First Class.

One of the cornerstones of Jet Airways’ JetPrivilege revamp was the abolition of Fuel Surcharges. This change was supposed to come into effect from September 1, 2014. Fuel Surcharges are usually similar for all classes in a flight, and hence I’ve always recommended premium cabin flights because for double miles and similar fuel surcharges where […]

Back in 2012, I had written about JetPrivilege, the loyalty program of Jet Airways, being spun off into a separate company. Some of the biggest Mileage programs around the world are run as independent companies, and I saw this approach as no different. However, it came handy when the deal was to be made between […]

Last week, I posted about Jet Airways offering a 20% bonus on converting your credit card points to Jet Privilege miles. I got a few queries about the transfer process and/or output, and I thought I’d answer them here in public interest: I got a question on Twitter, asking me if the 20% JP Miles […]
