I really hope one of the US bmi abusers actually gets the last post. That would be poetic.

I was fairly to venture over to the bmi forum but I would like to wish all the regulars on this forum all the best.

Iv enjoyed a good few threads on this forum over the last couple of years and am sad to see it being wound down.

Over and out

First it was 236 ticket stock, then BD flight numbers, now forum 486 - all the cornerstones of my travel life being dismantled

Still, I flew to TFS on G-DBCF the other day - it still had a bright blue bmi cabin control panel in the forward galley. It's the little things...

Will miss the folk on this forum

Goodbye BMI forum and thanks everyone.

It's worth point out that BMI might have disappeared as an airline, but it's still alive as Diamond Club via the MBNA credit card. It seems to be disproving the saying that all (ok, nearly all) good things must come to an end...

I can't believe we haven't actually managed to persuade the landlord to name the entrance as 'Diamond Doors'.

Bit late at this stage I suppose, although in the circumstances perhaps the toilet doors might now be more appropriate ...

Thank you BMI forum for showing me the way to first class flights. WelshBoy will now never travel again in economy.
Happy New Year and safe travels to all

The first real help I got from the BD community was with my first ever redemption - EDI-LHR-SIN in SQ F. Alas, BD forgot to ticket it as I discovered when I tried to book the cook two days before flying. To add to the spice, it was New Year's Eve when I made the discovery and was due to leave EDI early on 2 January. Fortunately, the BD members here coached me on how to get it resolved and two days later I was sitting in the nose of a Jumbo Jet with a glass of Krug.

Okay, final post from me:

Kirsty Wark. I keep thinking of Kirsty Young though.

Bye all! Love to you!

So long, and thanks for the cash & miles, The Economist, Bento Boxes, the very good and very bad operators in the call centre and plenty of craic on this board. It is New Year's Eve and I am drinking cheap champagne to show that, while we may have been adsorbed into BAEC, I am not ready to become one of them yet.
I really thing Joanna should make a reappearance for the final post.
