Please don’t worry, Diamond Club is NOT being closed.

However, since we no longer operate flights to and from The Netherlands, Israel and Ukraine, and in response to member requests, we’re transferring our members in these countries into Miles & More. These members can then continue to enjoy ffp benefits when flying on other Lufthansa sister airlines as well as with Star Alliance. Unfortunately, the web page that members in these markets click through to from the email we will be sending them accidentally appeared in the main navigation on our web page. We’re very sorry for the confusion this has caused.

Thanks Joanna.
Does this mean that members residenting in Israel will have to move to Miles and More? Is there any way to cancel the participation in this offer if I'm a resident of Israel and clicked on the link on your webpage?

The unintended side effect for bmi is that they probably eliminated quite a bit of their liabilities with a ton of awards issued today

No doubt the cost of those awards will be offset by all the cash generated by Wyndham Rewards buying millions and millions of miles. ^

(Let's not discuss WR here, please!)

Optional Transfer to M&M

Hi,

If we have a BMI DC account is it possible to OPT to switch to the M&M system?

Will be flying on Swiss & LH metal alot so it makes more sense...

Thanks!

PHEW !

Sincerely, thankyou for the update. It's wonderful to be able to get an answer on here rather than bothering the call centre.
