Jet Airways flies the 777 daily between Toronto and Amsterdam and they are a Virgin partner.



With the current 30% Amex bonus, the effective cost would be:

Economy (3-4-3) - 15,770 Amex
Business (1-2-1, herringbone) - 31,539 Amex
First (1-2-1, suite) - 46,154 Amex

Amounts are for OW, RT would be double.

No YQ is added for Jet Airways awards, so total tax would be a little over $40 from Toronto to Amsterdam.

Thank you, sorry I should have seen the MR points for business with the 30% in the post. I have a few hundred thousand VA miles , this is a nice option to use them, use avios to YYZ, then YYZ-AMS.
Have you flown Jet airways?
i flew with them twice, just take a window seat, on the middle row u maybe end up sit backwards

Sorry, should have clarified, never did any of these tours, in my younger days I was an airline pilot, started flying for the airlines at a very young age , my first position was a 2nd officer-yes they had a 3rd pilot at the cockpit those days, if he was pilot rated and an FE he was called a 2nd officer, if he had just an FE ticket then was called a Flight Engineer with no promotion possibilities to FO.  I studied at Braniff International Airlines at Dallas Love Field, upon graduation they hired me as a B727 2nd officer moved up to Captain on the 727 with Eastern Airlines , flew as an FO on the Tristar L1011 my favorite airplane of all time, then flew as a B767-200 Captain for a Norwegian Airline Braathens Safe till 1997 when it was acquired by SAS.

Never did any of these tours, I saw your previous post about them, very interesting to aviation enthusiasts, will definitely do it.  What I meant by my post is I spent most of my life in airports. :)

Your days were probably more interesting than the tours they give.

Whatís your total logged flight hours? Ever still fly for leisure as pilot?

That was indeed a nice plane for passengers too.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I logged 20700+ PIC time.   Last time I flew was in 2013 , rented a C172 and took my daughters for a flight to see if either of them will love flying enough to be a pilot, that was it .  A very close friend who started with me at Braniff is still flying, he is a Net Jet Captain, owned by Warren Buffett, he flies celebrities and those who can afford it in private jets to all over the world, he is based in FLL and a year ago, he was flying the owner of Simon Malls from IND-TLV ,IND is my home airport, he asked her for permission if I can fly with them, I had the opportunity to fly a Bombardier Global 6000, was fun.
I really think most today's pilots are good pilots, but everything is computerized, there is no real flying skill needed, on the B727 for e.g you did real flying, you had to be good, and pilots of that generation could handle emergencies much better.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

From some of the comments on the DDMS article, it seems YQ is either now being added to awards or itís a case of YMMV, and may depend on how the specific rep will price it.

Something to keep in mind if booking.
