Eligible Flights

Emirates flights between India and Dubai are not eligible to earn JPMiles.

In order for Emirates flights to be eligible to earn JetPrivilege miles (JPMiles), they must be marketed and operated by Emirates Airlines.  Flights purchased from Emirates.com that have the Emirates logo and begin with the letters “EK” meet these criteria.

Take care when purchasing Emirates flights from online travel agencies (OTA’s) like Orbitz or Expedia because these flights do not always meet the criteria.  In addition, it’s sometimes difficult to tell in which fare class a flight ticket from an OTA is issued, which is important if you’re concerned about the number of Jet Privilege miles you’re earning.

If purchasing tickets from a travel agent, make sure to verify that the ticket you are purchasing has been issued in the desired fare class as shown below.
