Last Voyager Magazine

This month's edition of Voyager magazine is apparently the last. While not always the last word in quality journalism it was always a reasonable and (in the case of the route map) surprising read and seemed to have improved a fair bit in the last few months (as with a lot of bmi ).
The May issue in particular actually had some stuff in it that I wanted to read. The final issue has a bit of a retrospective and a collection of covers from the past 7 or so years (I remember a worrying amount of them).
A small request. If anyone manages to pick up a paper copy could you keep hold of it for me? I'll pay postage. Failing this I'll try and get one out the EDI lounge next weekend (sadly I'm flying Ryanair but I'll drop off some chocolates or something for the base staff (if they're still there...)).

For those of us who are not likely to be setting foot on another BD branded aircraft ever (me! ) - the latest BMI voyager is available online:

http://www.bmivoyager.com/

That being said, I hope Granite Aviation/BMI-R/whatever will have a similar offering (but, ofcourse, it is not a priority for them at the moment).

I'm flying BEY-LHR tomorrow and they always have a ton in the BEY lounge - I'll happily fly one up to London for you.

My last fully BD flight tomorrow!

If I were you I'd pick up a dozen or so !!
You never know they might be worth something in the future, especially as I very much doubt many would of been printed

One of our clients advertises in it. Normal print run guaranteed by the publishers, so business as usual in that case. I wouldn't be expecting to make a fortune on Ebay anyway.

And in typical BMI style



I guess no point changing it now ....

Sad to see the last issue . Many a time I took a flick through it and it certainly wasnt the worst publication out there. I often enjoyed the destination guides. I think they could have had 4 pages with some nostalgia showing different liveries and uniforms ,fleet etc.. but I guess they didnt want to do it in this last issue. Still I enjoyed the articles on Shepheards hotel and Beirut .

Does bmi regional still carry Voyager? I notice that their routes disappeared from the routemap after the sale.

Just what are their priorities? Have not seen anything on what will happen when BA absorbs mainline bmi, will they become the new bmi ? or something else altogether?

No idea! I am sure most on this board are waiting with baited breath I am gutted that the LBA-GLA route is no more

It seemed odd to me how that route was actually scrapped just before BA had taken control of bmi.
