There was a thread in Flyertalk recently indicating that bmi were still granting status matches for BA Gold Executive Club with certain conditions:
- They want to see a copy (front and back) of your BA card
- You need to have some bmi flights booked
- You cannot have been matched before
- Other (non-BA) airlines elite status matches need to compete with bmi
So, after collating all the details (copies of card, PNR’s etc), I emailed the address in the thread. After a couple of email exchanges, lo and beyond, I am a newly minted Diamond Club Gold Elite.
No idea what will happen when (if) BA acquires them, but it’s worth having for a year at least – 4 Gold upgrades make me a certain bmi flyer this year!
Details of Elite Benefits at bmi are here.
