Maybe for the same reaction that I had - never realized this was possible...
Btw, how much does one pay in cash then - at what rate per mile?
I logged in to see how this works ..
I see there is a new option under redeem miles ''Cash and miles'' which was not there earlier IIRC..
I tried doing a dummy booking ..
its worked like this :-
CCU - DEL -- the web special fare being shown when trying to book a normal e-ticket is RS 4629..
When I try the same from the redeem cash and miles option then the fare comes to rs 4509 and it deducts 1200 miles..
I have much more than 1200 miles in my account, but less than the total miles required for this ticket..
I expected it to deduct the total miles available from my account and then take the balance from me in cash, but for some reason it has just deducted 1200 miles @ Rs 1 for 10 miles..
I also tried with another JP account which had more than sufficient miles balance for this award ticket and the same thing happens. It deducts only 1200 miles and reduces the price by Rs 120... I did it for the return ticket and it only debited 2400miles whereas had enuf miles for the whole trip.. interesting...
Maybe others can share their experience with this..
