Since Jet Airways has started a relationship with Delta, there is nothing that is changing for better. It is cut after cut after cut. They already discontinued 4 partners a few months ago.

Now joining the latest cut is Emirates and Gulf Air. Basically, they are removing any competitor Delta has on US market from the picture. There were supposed to come changes from Air France-KLM metal neutrality pact. So far the changes are not that encouraging. Jet Airways Platinums are still not allowed to use Air France First Class lounge in Paris which has supposed Michelin star preparation. 

Effective March 31, one will not be able to earn or burn JPMiles for Emirates or Gulf Air flights. If you have any trips through March 31, 2018, on Emirates or Gulf Air which you would like to credit to JetPrivilege, you’d have six months to make a retro-credit. 

I really don’t care about Gulf Air as it is one of the smaller airlines but cutting ties with Emirates is a big blow. It would be funny if Delta has to force Jet to choose between partnership with Etihad and them. However, it wasn’t Jet Airways partnership with Etihad that killed the partnership but rather Delta. 

I just hope Jet Airways doesn’t cut ties with Cathay Pacific. If that happens, I am probably removing Jet Airways completely for my International travel and its mile would basically be a dump. Such a bad news for Jetprivilege program.
