Golden rule for bmi - six month is the limit. If miles don't post automatically, you've six months to follow up.

In theory, after your 16000th mile you'll become silver, but somewhere on the other side of the world, that won't help you. First, your silver card (when it eventually arrives) will be in Scotland. So, it would need to be forwarded to you. Secondly, *Silver won't get you lounge access in partner lounges, only bmi lounges.

I'm guessing you don't fly very often under normal circumstances. Lufthansa's Miles & More might actually suit you better in the long run, as if you make *Gold towards the end of your year away, it will remain valid for two years thereafter. But again, you mightn't make it, depending on your routing.
