#LiveAt5 Giveaway: Win 2 round trip tickets to anywhere on Jet Airways

We are 5! It has been humbling to receive the support of everyone who has been visiting us day on day over the years, and I’m very proud that we’ve built a community of Indian frequent flyers together like never before. I know there are cryptic underground clubs where people talk in code, but out here we love to simplify everything and bring it to you.

I’d like to thank you for your support to us over a period of time. And feed your desire to travel some more. Or both. To this effect, we’re going to be running 5 weeks of contests, with 5 lovely prizes from our partners for all of you. Contests will start on Sunday 0000 India time, and close on 2359 India time on the coming Saturday. On Monday, we will announce the results of the giveaway. Sunday we announce the next prize as well! Our first contest just got over, and it’s time for the second one.


Week 2: Roundtrip Tickets for 2 anywhere on the Jet Airways Network

Regular readers would know that Jet Airways is the airline I use the most. They are my preferred carrier domestically and outside the country as well. There are multiple reasons for me to like them. The primary reason is the network. They go everywhere I need to go for work or leisure. Here is their extensive route map.



Jet Airways has a comfortable 777 service which will fly to Amsterdam shortly, they already operate on the A333 there. Additionally, they have the 777 going to Singapore & Dubai soon. Besides, I suspect they will be growing to new locations soon. Their herringbone product on the A332 is my favourite, but they have comfortable seats on all their planes.

For Jet Airways, they’ve crisply summarized their new phase of growth as #GetMore. They started to offer standby on earlier flights.  They offer free upgrades these days to surprise people, including on Twitter. You will be watching in-flight entertainment on your phone or iPad soon with Jet Airways. Jet Airways also recently took the lead on bringing in Krispy Kreme and Subway for domestic catering. I now have used the ability to cancel tickets for free within 24 hours a few times and saved tonnes of money, after all plans change. What more, there are things I haven’t written about, but Jet Airways got on there first. Fare Lock is one such instance. Bonus miles for booking online, and all the extra JPMiles with Jet Airways’ co-brand cards is another.

To celebrate 5 years of LiveFromALounge, Jet Airways extended us the opportunity to offer one of our readers 2 return trip tickets on any Jet Airways destination. The winner could have their pick of places. They could win 2 return tickets, Economy Class, on any direct route on the Jet Airways network in India, or 1 return ticket, Economy Class, on any Jet Airways international station and 1 return ticket, Economy Class, on any direct route on the Jet Airways network in India.

So, you could do a Mumbai to Paris trip on Jet Airways, and connect with your Delhi to Mumbai ticket on it. Alternatively, you could take your special one for a trip of two passengers to a destination on Jet Airways you’ve always been wanting to go to. The only thing you got to pay for, is the taxes on the ticket.

In it to win it?

Jet Airways will connect with the winner and help them book the tickets. Remember, the tickets are free but the taxes are to be paid by the winner. I’d advise you to have a look at the terms and conditions mentioned below.

  1. Would love to travel to Doha and redeem some of my Hilton Honors points for a stay in Hilton Qatar as well as visit family! The beach facing hotel looks great!

  2. Hi,
    Congratulations on turning 5 and it has been an incredible journey for you guys. It gives an immense pleasure to read you blog posts and tweets.

    I would like to travel to Amsterdam as it is a vibrant city and also one of the most intolerant ones. It is quite multi-cultural and rich in history. In an era, where every city is on a modernisation spree, Amsterdam is doing so but sticking to its rich past too.


    • tolerant* cities.
