Does BA understand how bmi works? Certainly not for its corporate customers

BA commented yesterday about its purchase of bmi and what it means for frequent flyers of both airlines.

However, there is a little ad at the bottom of the BA page – which caught my attention:

a close-up of a cardThe irony here is that bmi has not operated the Corporate Rewards scheme since 1 September 2010, when it was replaced by bmi’s participation in the Star Alliance Company Plus scheme.

Oddly BA do address this, with the option of earning points in the BA On Business scheme, but only for the select routes that they are putting BA flight numbers on.

Come on BA, it’s 2012 and we want our Corporate points.
