I won the BMI Moscow competition !!

I had some great news yesterday, I won the BMI inaugural flight to Moscow competition !

I get 2 economy flights LHR to Moscow, use of the lounge at T1, 2 nights 4* hotel stay and transfers included

It's a shame I didn't win the business seats but beggars can't be choosers. I am a very happy man (with a pleased mrs marf as well )

Congratulations! Now, all you need to do is go through the hassle of getting a Russian visa.

Many congrats - it's always exciting to win something, and this (even in economy) will be a great experience for you both.

Now be sure to take you camera and give us a thorough trip report!

Thats great news. Have a great trip and let us know what it was like when you get back. Would love to know what the meal service in Y is like and if you get a chance take a sneak at the new C class seats. Some pics would be nice .

Enjoy

Business class redemption avaliability looks great on this route at the moment. Anybody tried booking a journey at the promotional rate yet? I am especially interested if as a Gold card holder I can get the complimentary upgrade to C class but only pay Y miles (making it 10,000 miles + 90 taxes for a Business Class return!!).

Congratulations!
I guess this, together with "Anyone else win the April Competition?" (May '05) and this Has anyone ever won...... (May 04)
shows that the probability of an FTer winning a bmi competition is greater than one in 10,000!
