What is the vision for bmi?
The vision is for it to be a top quality ...
It's not much, but if you are planning a trip on British Midland in October or November, you can save 10% by entering 10FLYBMI in the promotion code section.
The promotion only discounts the base fare, is only valid for economy fares, and is only valid on BD metal. Book by August 1st for travel from October 1st to November 30th.
Based on this thread on Flyertalk, it appears that BMI's Diamond Club will cease to exist in the next few days and be migrated to Lufthansa's Miles and More.
This is truly sad but honestly I can't say that I'm surprised.
With our recent podcast on BMI and the growing interest, I figured i'd share a great promo. Wyndham rewards has recently become a partner of bmi and is offering 5,000 miles per stay, up to a total of 20,000 miles.
Details can be found here.
In the states, this promo includes such fine brands as Howard Johnson, Super 8, Travelodge and Ramada.
This is an amazing return for a small outlay of cash.
This is probably the shortest elite status podcast ever but we covered some listener questions about BMI Diamond Club. Since we recorded this last week there have been some changes - Fozz will be posting some updates on his blog about this soon.
This week we discuss BMI, their frequent flyer program, and why so many Upgrd contributors have BMI Gold status as one of their "backup" programs.
Please send in your comments about BMI's program or anything we missed or has changed.
This year for Thanksgiving I decided to visit one of my favorite cities, London. Yes, I realize there is a certain irony about visiting England for Thanksgiving, that's part of the fun.
On my way back, I had the opportunity to stop in the new BMI Number One Lounge. It was an amazing lounge, even at 6am. Parts of the lounge reminded me of night clubs in the aspect of design and features (there were even beds in one of the corners). The true challenge was finding the lounge itself as it's as hidden as the bat cave, but in the end I did manage to find it.
