BMI

Thought I would start up a new thread on BMI/Regional/Baby as the merger is now complete.

Anyone know about the annoucement on Wednesday ?

I expect that it will be an earth-shaking announcement of a change in the colour of post-it pads available at the Hall - but that the new ones will only be available in 10 years ...

After agreeing Open Skies to Pakistan it might be to announce our "new and exciting" routes to Lahore and Somewhereisbad. I'll ask a cleaner and get back to you................

There were the nasty questionaires flying around again at the end of last year. Perhaps its another "New" Business Model.

Plus I did mean the BMI/BMed merger.

Question Announcements?

Recently heard that BA will make an important strategic announcement on Tues [tomorrow] and bmi and Wed - anyone shoot me if I put 2+2 = 5? If anyone knows more - please enlighten the rest of us! Promise I won't tell.

Regards,

Just wait and see.

Don,t be to hasty it might not be all good news.
The best thing is to wait and see what the package is when all is revealed on wednesday, there might be some surprises but on the other hand there might be some dissappointments.

This is true why have a BA annoucement on Tuesday to say they have bought us. Only to Have BMI do the same thing on Wednesday. MAkes no sense.

Probably just an annoucement about leasing some a/c to cover the bmeds routes. 757 or 767.

maybe reabsorbance of WW into mainline? Or a new fleet?

I'd guess its a 757/767 announcement though.

bmi

There has been some talk that bmi are still interested in flying across the pond and are seeking a partner. Maybe its more news about code shares.

Or that there is going to be another route added on to the JED like Damman on the RUH. I had heard someplace beginning with S, but can't remember the name so I can't put it here.

What about the SAS shares, anyone bought them yet?
