April 13, 2012 The slow death of bmi diamond club Pt. 2
Lucky Coins a fellow aviation blogger wrote a piece on the death diamond club this evening, you can find it here
The article starts out by saying you have one week to burn your miles. This is not accurate information. His post comes from the following quote on the bmi website.
It is the intention that bmi will begin to withdraw from Star Alliance at the date of completion of the sale, which we expect to be around 20 April, 2012.
bmi, Lufthansa and Star Alliance will be working together during the coming weeks to ensure bmi’s smooth exit from Star Alliance.
We will update you as soon as more information becomes available.
Well there are no surprises in that quote. The sale will be completed on the 20th of the month and bmi, and will exit *A soon after. Yes in order to redeem on Lufthansa group airlines, you will need to do that before the 20th. bmi will *a sometime after that and you will have to redeem on *A before that date. Or if you want, you could hold on to miles and they will be eventually converted to AVIOS miles in One World.
