JetAirways Award availability

I am looking for a flight from BKK-BOM one-way on any date from 25th Dec to 31st Dec at low level economy. I am not able to use Jet Airways online tool to check the availability. I want to avoid calling in. Any other tool which can give the Jet Airways availability? Can someone help check-in the availability?

if i get correctly what you are saying....
award tickets are available for 20000 miles and 3700 THB on 25th Dec...also special fare for 5000 THB...better would be buying a ticket for 5000 THB and saving ur miles

Thanks. But as you said, seems better to buy with cash!

Jet intl redemptions in Y are pretty low value for money..
Try to look for Jet Partner redemptions in Y if you really wanna spend your miles..
There is a separate thread in this forum on Jet partner redemptions and that will give you some idea.. Many a times, redemptions on Jet partners are cheaper and better than on Jet !! ..
CX also flies BKK - BOM route IIRC and they charge much less as fees and taxes compared to Jet..

i have never found any good redemption value for any international jet flight in economy....their taxes & fees are just too high to make this a good value for miles or cash....

a couple of weeks ago my cousin wanted to redeem 54k miles for a round trip in economy to london....this would have cost him about inr 38k in taxes & fees....i told him to buy a revenue ticket for inr 55k & use his miles to upgrade....this way he would earn some miles back & at the end of the day he would spend an extra inr 15k & about 10k miles more than he was initially doing & would get to travel in comfort....

similarly, my wife is traveling del-sin-del next month....economy ticket is for about inr 30k, economy redemption is 40k miles + inr 21k in taxes & fees....again, i am buying an economy ticket & spending about 60k miles to upgrade her....

Yup! Jet miles are useful ONLY for:

1. Domestic redemptions
2. Partner redemptions
3. Upgrades

domestic redemptions only make sense in economy....i don't think première redemption is good value....

only if the Y ticket is priced through the roof and there is an open award seat. like I won't spend 11K miles BOM-DEL if seat is available for 5K INR or so. But on BOM-UDR, where prices are generally higher, i would, if the price of a rev ticket is out of whack.

once on DEL - CCU, Y was full and not award availability , the cheapest other fare was 11k inr.. so used 18600 miles to book del - ccu in premiere with inr 700 as taxes.. online fare for this was 28k..

Looking at using my UA miles to complete a journey to BOM from BAH or KWI. What is the booking code for an award ticket in premiere or economy?
