Hi guys, I thought you would be interested in this. It is official info given to bmi staff with regards to leaving star alliance.

bmi will leave star alliance in two stages.

First stage (legal exit) effective from 17th April 2012.

Second stage (customer benefit end date) effective 31st May 2012. This will include, but will not be limited to, the following changes:

- End of Star Alliance mileage accrual on bmi operated flights.

- bmi DC members will no longer accrue mileage on Star Alliance operated flights.

- Priority reservation, waitlist and standby will cease for Star Alliance customers on bmi and vice versa.

- Priority Check-in, boarding, baggage delivery will cease for Star Alliance customers on bmi and vice versa.

- Additional baggage allowance will cease for Star Alliance customers on bmi and vice versa.

- Lounge access will cease for qualifying Star Alliance customers on bmi and vice versa.

The marketing and product development teams are currently outlining the new customer offering and will let you know the new bmi (non-aligned) product discription in the forthcomining weeks. Please note that bmi will be a non-aligned carrier as it will not join One World.

Hope this helps you a little but I expect that you will be given some official information very shortly.
