Just stay away from Jet miles programme. No way you will be able to redeem the miles & your points will only expire. Try doing it yourself.
JET is such a company that it will ensure that you do NOT get seats if you want to utilize the miles. First priority will be a hopping flight...next you will at best get just 1 seat (so forget about planning the holiday). Oh Yes, what about return flight. You pay through the nose since chances are 100% that no return flight seats are allocated.
I have a platinum card & this is what I get.....just imagine about others.
Till date, I have now email reply (not even auto reply, which is such a common thing)....
I booked & got the confirmation (even a PNR) but there is no such communication.
THEY WANT YR MILES TO EXPIRE & CHEAT and FLEECE THE CUSTOMERS....
A better option is low cost Airlines......SO PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM SUCH AIRLINES....WE ALL KNOW WHAT THEY DID TO THIER OWN EMPLOYEES SOME TIME BACK.
ETHICS IS COMPLETELY MISSING HERE !!!
I just wish to inform you that I am taking this complaint in the consumer court & also write the feedback on consumer blogs, if there is no resolution within this week (by Feb 26/2010)
It seems that you are holding the customers to ransom. Despite giving numerous reminders, there is NOT even a single response.
This is quite atrocious. This jetmiles seems to be a big eye-wash & it is high time that everyone knows about it.
Have some courtesy to at least respond to customer's query. Quite Atrocious really

I have given the request through "Online Jet Award Form" for the following bookings. Since I do not have any confirmation, I am also sending an email, as advised by Ms Roshell.
Date of Travel: March 29/2010
Name(s) of Passengers:
1) Mr MANOJ GURNANI
2) Ms GARIMA GURNANI
3) Baby AANYA GURNANI (Age 3 Yrs)
Roshell confirmed the bookings of two adults, viz Manoj & Garima & has taken booking of Aanya on request. My earnest request to pl award this ticket also, given my long association with Jet.
I would also like to give the feedback that it is very cumbersome & painstaking to redeem miles. Poor customers feel fleeced & cheated since award tickets are simply not available when you want it. The Website design & experience adds further to agony. This is not only my experience but many of my colleagues' experience. I am sure this will be rectified.
PL CONFIRM THE SAME & SEND THE TICKETS AT THE EARLIEST, FOR ME TO PLAN MY OTHER ITINERARY.

Airline Service grievance against their privilege programme - Jet Airways
Airline Service grievence against their privilage programme
I was going through a consumer website & came across your email id & hence am writing this email.
I've been flying on Jet Airways and as a privilege member for a over 4 and a half years - a fairly long time, accumulated over 25, 000 – points.
However subsequently due to not having the opportunity to fly with them they down graded twice in the last 6 mths to 18, 000 points and cut my points & my tier status from silver to Blue Plus & they are doing so again as they say that the points are expiring.
I did not say anything initially at that time, but now I am unable to understand that as a reward point’s program for customer benefit they are adopting negative tactics with consumers.
When consumers pay for tickets they are spending money, how can their benefits or rewards be taken back from a customer for points already credited to his name/account.
Flight No. 9W120 Mumbai - London Heathrow - there was no soap and toilet roll was there in toilet, made the complaint to crew but no one attended for the same. Also wet duster was lying in the toilet.
My seat No. 35D
On 6th July 2009
Flight No. 9W 117 London Heathrow - Mumbai
I press the call bell couple of time - no one turned up - (During flight was on ground - as it was delayed)
I was needed the water to have medicine - when one of the mail crew was passing I called him and requested him to serve me the water - he came back after 8 minutes with water and gave it to me just like he was obliging me to serve the same. Water bottles was not available in flight.earlier also once it was happend for water but I did not made any complaint but this time
Further there was no Toilet roll was not there in toilet - usual complaint.
Since two years I am regularly travelling with Jet Airways - you may check your record - Now Next time do you wants me to change the Airlines?
Ticket not delivered even after 100 miles. - Kingfisher
This is a complaint against KingFisher airlines. I travelled from Delhi to Leh on June 15th and booked my ticket on internet. Some how I was in need of the receipt after my return. I contacted airlines for the same atleast 100 times. On every phone call I was just given an email address to write to and on writing they never responded back. The receipt is not that important for me but the kind of responce Airlines has given is very poor. When I have paid them, I have right to ask for receipt which they should provide in any case.
Completely agree with you. Jet Airways is fleecing customers in charging fees over and above the redeem miles. They have unfriendly customer service who just don’t assist customers on their request resolutions. Most unprofessional airlines with unprofessional policies and executives. Citibank has a Jet card which is most worthless program they have started. It’s the main area of fleecing customers bluffing that you can redeem your points which doesn’t happen eventually due to unavailable seats, or points expired or too high points in that sector or additional charges to be paid. Please avoid any membership packages with Jet Airways. Go for KingClub or for spice jet, most of us have learnt the hard way, .. there is no need for others to suffer the same pain

Iam privilege member on your airways. I dont know my miles. Check on my miles your website give me my personal password.
I have 1lac JP miles expiring in Dec10. I booked a Award ticket in July10 for travel in Nov10 and they just wont confirm the Award tickets. This is how they treat their Platinum members. There must be some place where we can hurt them. Freedie Awards? Some consumer forum? Guys ... pl keep sharing so we can build enough consumer awareness. email@example.com
I have been attempting to redeem my JPmiles at numerous times, and always getting the same ridiculous results on the website -- destination not available, OVER BOOKED (for every possible date imaginable) or Sorry, an error occured, please try again.
It is utter crap and they really need to get this sorted out.

redemption of miles - Jet Airways
I am trying to redeem long accumulated JPmiles for the first time and I am disappointed by the response. I tried to book tickets in 3 months advance and I was refused. I tried to check for other days then was even more surprised non of the dates in 2 months were available. And on top of that I was given this number Tel - +91 22 40191000 and ext to contact Head of JPmiles program but this number always say "operator is busy" - try calling on any working day and hour. very frustrating and irresponsible.
I did not know this face of Jet all these years when I accumulated miles.
I completely agree. I recently tried booking for a delhi singapore flight 35 days in advance only to be told entire quota is sold. When asked about the availability for next 60 days it was same, with one ticket available on an odd day, which only confirmed the suspicion that they do not want redemption of these points.
The service centre folks are uanble to answer why when economy class revenue tickets are still available and use the argument of management discretion.
Am finally buying tickets but will never do so with Jet whether international / domestic and am going to write to citibank to cancel my jet platinum card.
I agree, Tried bpooking a ticket from chennai to colombo, 4000 JP miles + rs. 4400 .WTF.Srilankan airlines charges 8300 for a round trip - all inclusive.JJet privelege is a big eyewask.Iam letting 32K miles expire on 30th June.
chennai to colombo - one way 4000Miles + 4400 Rs is ridiculous.Also - tried for a bangalore - chennai ticket only to be told its not availaable.Kingfisher offered a ticket against their miles- almost immediately.
Please update following.
