Good man - thanks for the post. Do you think that they might include transatlantic in the sale - I don't see it on the website though.

terms and conditions

2. Prices shown are inclusive of all taxes and passenger service charges for one-way travel originating from airports in the UK. Please note that differences in fares for flights inbound to the UK from Europe may result in the offer price not being matched on the return leg.

Hmmm... not so many savings outside the UK.

Good luck trying to book any of these fares. I keep getting the website telling me that the servers are smoking with so much demand!

Smoking server? Sorry, that'll be me snagging all the EDI-LHR rotations for 13 + tax

Talking of which, I notice BD66 (LHR-EDI dep 0735) and BD67 (EDI-LHR dep 0955) have been dropped from the summer timetable. The timings of the surrounding rotations always made it the odd one out, so no real surprise.

It will be my 1st time flying BMI.
Came across that thread and booked a 1 way ticket MAD-LHR-CDG for 87.
I love the fact that BMI sells one way ticket at decent pricing.
Called the BMI number in the US and had them add my Aeroplan number. Very nice people.
So far so good.
Can I expect the same treatment during my 2 segments? and at the airport lounges (being *A gold should give me access, right?)

The one way pricing is a major bonus. They are (generally) lovely people, and yes the treatment should continue at the airports and on the flights (although I can't remember how much of their ground services are subbed out at MAD...). And you will get lounge access (again, last time I was through MAD - which was a couple of years ago - it was a contract lounge rather than a BD Diamond Club lounge, but was very nice all the same).
