Business Class Gutted on Select bmi Flights; Other Changes Looming

To “meet changes in our customers needs”, Business Class replaced by ‘FlexiY’ on LHR-GLA/EDI/DUB/BHD from 27 Jan; end of Blue+ on bmi British Midland, essentially removing the premium class cabin and replacing it with a coach cabin service known as Flexible Economy, where “you’ve never had it so good.”

In addition, the days of Blue+ elite status membership are numbered, and there reportedly will be no more free food for those with elite status in the economy cabin.

As a response, many FlyerTalk members posting in the bmi Diamond Club forum are in an uproar, as some sense the death knell of bmi as they know it, while others intend to “burn through” their bmi Diamond Club miles as quickly as possible.
