oneworld - BHD on OneWorld Explorer
Jun 27, 12, 6:57 pm
I'm planning an explorer itinerary for early September and want to get it booked soon, however was wondering if anyone knew when the LHR-BHD flights from BA (formerly BMI of course) will be showing up as available for this fare?
Happy to take the hit to add them later or if necessary book them separately but don't want to book and then find they suddenly appear the following day! :-)

See the last few posts in this thread:
Until BA fully integrates the flights (and announces them on the website) I doubt they will be available.

According to http://www.britishairways.com/travel/bmi-information-news-hub/public/en_gb, BHD has ben integrated since 27JUN, so you should be able to use them on an xONEx.

Hmm, thanks for the info guys, still no visibility of it in the ONE booking tool, though as you say it does seem to be integrated into BA, there is no BMI flight number, so you would think it would be eligible - maybe they are waiting for the winter timetable change before adding into OneWorld inventory for RTW tickets?
Either way I'll keep an eye on it and maybe give the gold line a call and see if they can shed any light!
