Jet airways - US North East to Europe USD 1613/- OW in First

Jet airways has 40% bonus offer for online JP miles purchase with no upper limit.

http://www.jetairways.com/EN/NP/JetP...-purchase.aspx

According to partner award chart for JP miles, it costs 120,000 JP miles for Zone Z08 (Europe) to Z09 (US North East) for First class one way ticket on partner airlines.

According to terms of buying JP miles online, it costs Rs. 1.25/- per mile with 40% bonus thrown in. Hence, one needs to buy 86,000 miles to get 120,400 miles due to 40% bonus miles. Total cost for this would be Rs. 107,500/- equivalent of USD 1613/- @ rate of USD 1 = INR 66.65.

Partner airlines include Emirates, Etihad, Cathay and many others.

Return ticket would cost double to one way ticket.

Don't bother. Jet makes it impossble to redeem any miles. You can't do it over the phone and have to email them which they take days to reply to. Award seats often don't match what you can see through the airline you want to book. I had some 200k JP miles that I had to use up in the last year as they were expiring. I could never redeem anything as the partner reward department is

Also they charge full YQ as per a published ticket. Even if they airline themselves don't charge it for awards.
