Jet Airways is offering double miles on the business class (Premiere) fares they are offering for flights from Delhi to their two stations in North America, which are Newark (EWR) and Toronto (YYZ) between July 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014.
Now, this is clearly done for increasing business class traffic on North American routes, where I am guessing they are facing competition from Middle East and European carriers. For travelling in Premiere, you would get JP miles credited as per the direct routing for DEL-YYZ-DEL, which is 7244 flown miles as compared to DEL-BRU-YYZ and back which is 7750 flown miles. On top of this you get a bonus of 7244 miles as double miles bonus, and 3622 miles for flying business class revenue fares, and any other tier bonuses. So, at a minimum, you are looking at 36000 JP Miles on this round trip to Toronto, and 38000 JP miles on a round trip to Newark. Of course, if you book with a Jet Airways co-branded credit card, you get a lot more JP miles as well.
Here is a review of my Mumbai – Brussels flight Business Class last year, which is the new A330-300 service with the staggered business class seats and services. Also, the review of the A330-200 service, which sometimes serves this route with the herringbone business class seats.
