Ever since bmi became a part of the Lufthansa group of airlines, bmi diamond club members have been closely watching news from the airlines, dreading the day that diamond club would be folded into Miles & More. According to an official bmi source on FlyerTalk, diamond club is safe for 2011. “We are evaluating being part of Miles & More in the long term. A final decision has not been taken and such a move would not happen in 2011.” The bmi spokesperson goes on to say that bmi is continuing to improve and develop diamond club, including launching Star Alliance upgrade awards this year as well as bringing new partners on board. And in answer to questions brought up by members, “Miles and cash is here to stay. We have no plans to remove it once we introduce Star Alliance upgrade rewards later this year.” No plans are underway to make any changes to the standard award chart and when the Star Alliance upgrade awards are announced, a separate awards chart will be introduced.
