On Oct 12, 2018, Jet Airways went digital. As I spoke about Upgrade Vouchers becoming E-Vouchers.
Well, there is more addition to it. Earlier, when we would ask upgrade via miles at airport check-in counter. Jet Airways used to ask us to sign a form for miles upgrade.
Now, new iteration is that you will receive OTP (One Time Password) when you ask to be upgraded at a check-in counter. Once you provide the OTP to the person at the counter, they will upgrade you to Premiere Class (Business Class).
Once, you have been upgraded on their system, you will receive a confirmation about the amount of miles that have been deducted from your account for your upgrade.
Jet Airways has slowly been reducing upgradable seats via Miles/Vouchers lately and has been 1 or 2 per flight. They provide priority to people who are willing to shell out cash vs the people who want to use miles/vouchers.
