Welcome to all status-matched BMI refugees, from a A3 member who qualified as A3 gold from flown miles last year. It's a really good programme with a lot of plus points.

Now, do you think we should start a campaign to get A3 to launch a partnership with MBNA - so that a miles-earning credit card can be issued in the UK and countries other than Greece - and/or points transfer from Amex Platinum and/or SPG?

I'd also like to see A3 introducing miles-plus-cash bookings, refdundable/changeable award bookings, and some of the other USPs of BMI Diamond Club - and of course hiring Keeley! - but a UK miles-earning credit card or Amex/SPG points transfer option would be my first wish for Miles&Bonus.

In the meantime though, sit back, relax, enjoy the programme, try and fly on A3 metal sometime (I'm hoping to later this year), and remember to book your hotel stays through the A3 website for maximum points!

Yes, it was only outshined by DC, obviously... I wonder if the matching campaign will have a significant impact on the number of heavy flyers (I suspect most A3 M&B account holders are in Greece.

We should campaign for the DCization of M&B

I'll probably do the same thing as I did with BMI : fly once on their metal to discover the product. There are A3 destinations I've never been to!

Hmm. I am already blue with A3. Seems worth a shot trying to get BMI Gold matched.

I have to admit: BD people are not getting such a bad deal, getting status on both OW and *A!

I was already Aegean Blue (*S), but Aegean have just agreed to my request to match my BMI Gold. I wonder how long the status will last for? I'll find out when the card turns up in 2 months
