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.

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…

A cheap way to extend validity of your JP Miles for 2 years and earn some in the process

One of the new enhancements that JetPrivilege rolled out for members a few weeks ago was the extension of their miles validity from 3 years to 5 years, as long as you had one co-branded debit or credit card, and one activity on the card in the past year. I think it is a great feature to offer, and I personally benefit from it if I drop off from my Platinum status sometime. Now, just very recently, HDFC and JetPrivilege’s co-branded debit card, dropped fees to INR 500 per annum (free for first year for Classic,Preferred and Imperia banking members). In this case, you’re getting 1000 JP Miles, to set up your debit card, 2000 JP Miles for your first…
