Reply To: bmi Drops UK Domestic Business Class and Free Food for Elites from 27 January

I don’t really understand what all the fuss is about. Bmi will still be offering a ‘business service’ in all but name. The renaming & slight on board changes allow bmi to get around the unfair & increased ADP tax for business pax along with increased profitability on the routes. Flexible economy will be situated at the front of the A/C with a ‘virtual’ curtain divider (different coloured head rests).

Compared to BA on the EDI-LHR route, I have always found bmi to more reliable (recent snow conditions included) with staff willing to go the extra mile. I would have to agree that the withdrawal of bmi business on UK short haul puts it at odd with all the Lufthansa Group airlines!! This may be something that LH might address in the future when the world economy improves.
