Diamond Club frequent flyer program will cease to exist on British Midland International flights from October 28, 2012.
British Midland International, popularly known as BMI, recently announced that its Diamond Club frequent flyer program will effectively cease to exist from October 28 this year.
Peter Simpson, Managing Director of BMI, has already apprised the Diamond Club members of the airline’s move. The members have also been sent emails regarding a number of changes made to the Diamond Club frequent flyer loyalty program following the sale of airline to IAG, which also owns British Airways.
Simpson in his email to BMI’s Diamond Club frequent flyer program members announced a series of changes. He said that effective October 27, the members will not be able to earn and spend their destination miles on BMI operated flights with a BMI flight number.
The Diamond Club members will also not be able to earn and spend their destination miles on BMI partner airlines, including British Airways, Qatar Airways, Jet Airways and Transaero Airways.
British Airways is now inviting all the Diamond Club members to enroll with it, who are currently not members of the Executive Club.
