I always love when airlines add partners – in essence it increases the value of the points since new partners mean more redemption opportunities are available.

Starting March 4, 2011, Jet Airways is now a partner of US Airways Dividend Miles. This is great news for a couple reasons: Star Alliance has a relatively small imprint at JFK, so having another European departure (JFK-BRU, which is a Star Alliance hub) only increases travel opportunities. Also, US Airways charges 120,000 for business class and 160,000 for first class and Jet’s service is top notch, thus totally making this redemption opportunity very valuable.

Overall, this only adds to the reason why people should take advantage of the cheap Buy Miles promotions. In case you don’t want to accrue US Airways miles, Jet is a partner of Delta, so you can use Skymiles to book Jet flights (note – first class redemptions are not allowed).

I’ll update later when we find out what the taxes/fuel surcharges will be on awards.

    Hopefully we get some scoops on how Jet figures in to any RTW bookings, fuel surcharges, F class, etc.

  • Chris

    Any hints on how to check award availability?

  • Josh

    Does this make jet flights eligible for star alliance points?

    Most programs say that codeshare or partners flights through a non-alliance partner are not elligible for points

    I lived through this on a TAP flight operated by SATA –> no points from aeroplan

    Chris- there is no online tool, so you have to call the airline to get Jet availability. I’ve done this with Delta a lot and I’ve been impressed with Jet’s availability– since its so hard to find it, I guess less people book awards!

    Josh- earning of miles (both redeemable and status) are TBD, but it sounds like you will be able to, though cheaper coach fares may not earn 100%
