Dumb Question: Connecting Zone 1-2 Redemptions

Dumb Question...

The "How to spend your BMI miles" webpage...

http://www.flybmi.com/bmi/src/html/d...pendmiles.html

States...

"All connecting flights for journeys where the final destination is within zone 1 or zone 2 will be charged at 7500 miles."

I want to fly from LHR-BUD and as far as I can tell there are no direct *A flights, so I would have to change in mainland Europe.

Now are BMI going to charge me an additional 7500 miles on top of the 12,000 a direct flight would cost? Or as the website suggests will the connecting flight be a poultry 7500 miles?

Semantics I know but if it's an additional 7500 miles why doesn't it just say so?

The round trip will be 12,000 miles for being Z1-Z2, plus 7,500 for the connection, so 19,500 in total.

This topic was recently discussed, and there is a comprehensive answer in the FAQ, post #2, section

Additional miles required for z1/2 awards involving connecting flights

Got it. Thanks for the pointer.

Next time I feel the need to ask a dumb question I'll make sure I read the FAQ's first. (ashamed)

Called the ICC and confirmed that it is just once that you pay.
