anyone opinions on the business class product on BMI(A320) to Marrakech? Want to take my partner for a special birthday – is it worth the money?
Also any suggestions on Hotels?25 Aug 2011
Hi tarisingh – here are a couple of links that you may find useful on the subjects above:25 Aug 2011
Do you have any BMI miles as I got an email from Diamond Club yesterday with some great reduced mileage awards. I will start another shortly but in the meantime
Flights between the following routes:
London Heathrow and Moscow, Tbilisi, Casablanca, Agadir, Berlin, Marrakech, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Belfast, Dublin, Bergen, Stavanger, Basel, Hanover, Manchester, Nice, Vienna

the BMI international lounge in Heathrow T1 is excellent. It is the former BA Terraces, but refurbished with superb views of the runway. Food and drink good too.
If you have Star Alliance Gold, you can use their lounge in T1. It has a bigger range of food and is a lovely lounge to use too.
If you are a Diamond Club member, the rewards for business class are very generous.

I have not flown BMI business to Marrakech, but (when I last looked) it was a significant fare and, I thought, unlikely to offer good value. The BA service from LGW is, I find, good value although the Club Europe product is not as good as from LHR (eg. although a long CE route, there are no appertisers). Royal Air Maroc provides by far the best business class, but involves a stop and/or change in Casablanca which can lead to problems.
As for hotels, I know Marrakech well (I have a small house there). If it is your first time there, and you are limited to time, so can only visit one place, I would suggest you do not stay in a Riad in the Medina (however wonderful, you cannot guarantee a good nights sleep, no matter what you spend). However, you will want to be close to town to walk in and experience the restaurants etc.. I would recommend the Royal Mansour if you like privacy (since you will rarely see other guests) or the Four Seasons – which is particularly well priced since it is new. La Mamounia is great to visit for a long, lazy lunch by the pool, but over priced (and not remotely worth staying in unless you have a garden or pool view room).
Have a great time!25 Aug 2011
