Jet Airways awards in F on AA miles ?

Hi all,

Does anybody know whether Jet Airways makes these awards available and in what inventory ? I have been unsuccessful finding one. Business class (D) and Coach (X) seem to be no problem though Business on certain domestic flights (BOM/HYD ?) seems to be restricted, even several months in advance. Awards inventory apparently does not show on ExpertFlyer.

If you are trying for F domestically, be advised that there is no First Class, only on the international sectors, flying ex-India to BRU and LHR, and onwards from BRU to NYC (EWR/JFK).

I think the ex-DEL A332 flies via BRU to YYZ, so maybe no F there...but I recall someone posting that this aircraft was replaced by a 77w...

Real F awards on AA miles, 77W aircraft

No, I meant real F class on the 77W between LHR and BOM/DEL as well as the Indian and transatlantic sectors from/to BRU.

Also when such sectors such as BOM/HYD have available award seats in Y (X) but none in J (D) 9 months ahead (DEL/HYD has seats open in D), does anybody know whether these seats open later or is it a permanent restriction on the route ?

Thanks all.

Yes and it's a steal, especially considering that a RT within the US in abominable First Class is 45 !!!!

Just short of US$ 200. A big part of it is the UK "Luxury tax".

The obvious thing to do would be to look at the AA award chart to see how many miles you require.
