No chance that BA will do the same. Not sure they see the value of loyalty in the long term.

With their recent take-over of bmi, bmiI’s lifetime gold card holders are advised that they will get a BA gold card for a minimum of one year (although that doesn’t really clarify anything – personally think there’s an issue with the use of English and what they are trying to say is ‘…for a maximum of one year’).

Interesting comment, I was comped to BA gold but within a few months and only a couple of months after my BA year begin I was suddently downgraded – and found out too late to get back up before a forthcoming flight – I was upgraded back to gold though but have now again been put down to silver – long before the year is up (though a year after the bmi takeover) has anyone else who went from BMI to BA gold (in what was admittedly a very generous offer, silver would have been fine from the outset) had the same experience?
