    Budget airline BMI Baby, which has been carrying passengers from Midlands airports for a decade, will fly for the final time today.

    It's after its parent company BMI was sold by Lufthansa to British Airways in July.
    Attempts were made to sell off the budget airline which flies to destinations across the continent, but no buyer was found.

    It means the loss of nearly 400 job in the East Midlands, many of them at the airline's headquarters in Castle Donington.

    Nationally more than 800 people will have been made redundant when the company folds.
    The carrier has two large bases at East Midlands Airport and Birmingham Airport.
    A number of routes have already been axed as part of the closure of the company, with the last flight today.

    Never flew BmI Baby... Or BMI manline for that matter. Did manage to acquire about 110k miles in their frequent flyer program, though (the family accounts were quite nice to get value out out of UA and other *A flights by family members who aren't infected).
