GBH?
I knew a girl once referred as girl GBH, Ginger Bitch from Hell!
Maybe not a good brand name.

Let us say BM do keep the 'British' in it for a moment. How about...

British Airline Transatlantic International..

... or the the BATI boys to be precise.. Aight!!

What's all this talk of 'Atlantic' in a new name. I recall reading a
recent article that BM are also looking at using the A330s on schedules in
the other direction as well.

Perhaps one side of the aircraft will have British Asian Airways on the
roof. BAA? Rings a bell, can't place it though

Sorry about the short replys, but as a professional airline pilot I do not have the necessary literary skills to express myself eloquently as say a lawyer or journalist.

The hot money is on "British Diamond". I do believe Avman reckons it will be this aswell. I suppose it beats "British Brummie" The latter would be a right laugh :-)

Went to the "Park" today, there is a new sign under a taupalin in the car park with the new ensignia "BMI".

The A330 mock-up is in white but won't be "decorated" until the above is confirmed.

"Ooops oops pull the other one!"

Talking

as most of us are know aware the new name is British Midland International, or BMI for short. Shall we say one of our deicing rigs took a close look at the "covered" sign on the bd hangar at LHR. The reason that Midland have planes in Star alliance livery is due to a nice liitle advertising deal worth 120million to have 12 of our planes on said livery. Although its a rather toned down version of Air Canada's star livery...that would have been nice.

I hear that an enterprising bm pilot has registered all those bmi domane names with an eye to an early christmas bonus for selling them to the company!
