    Not sure whether to be in favour of this or not! It can't do any harm, I suppose, if it moves some business from BA to BMI.

    I have done by bit by forwarding the link to a few friends coming to a wedding in Dublin with me in August. Amazingly, BA does not fly to Dublin!

  5. Just signed up. This is great. I am flying in a week and was going to pay $US25 each way to check a bag. Not anymore!

  7. Just like every time, this is a targeted offer, and those that do not qualify will (mostly) lose the benefits temporarily gained.

    The standard email requesting verification of the company affiliation is going out right now.

    What "standard email" are you referring to?

    I signed up two accounts (one for me, one for someone else) over the weekend and as of now, no email (beyond the welcome email) and the accounts still reflect silver online.

    Wish I had seen this sooner. At least I found a cool new link in the form of Dan's Deals :D

    And I envy those that got in on this! I had visions of status matching on AA and free bags on USAir, the airlines I mostly fly ...

    Has anyone tried this new link which Dan put up on Mar 13? -

    Managed to snag Silver as soon as I heard about it even although i'm not entirely sure how much use I'll get out of it.

    I tried it. Not only did I get Blue, but I didn't even get the 1,000 miles!

    The OWE code appears to work in the new link Dan posted on 3/13. But it looks like the instant silver and 1k bonus are gone...

  18. So is my Silver Status. I just got the following email from them

    We're pleased to see that you recently joined our Diamond Club frequent flyer programme. However, I'm writing to you because unfortunately the link you used to join was an exclusive by invitation only offer and as noted in our terms and conditions was non transferable.


    Regrettably, we will not be honouring the Silver status, and over the next few days your account will be downgraded to Blue status. Our decision is final, and we won't be entering into any further correspondence on this. On a positive note though, our frequent flyer programme is one of the most generous programmes around, and you only need to earn 16,000 membership status miles to earn a Silver membership. When you fly with us, or any of the Star Alliance airlines, you'll reach Silver status in no time at all. You'll also have access to all our offers and promotions, as well as being the first to hear about our great sale fares. We hope you'll still enjoy the benefits of your Diamond Club membership.

    Yes. It wasn't fun while it lasted. I flew one round trip using the bmi FF number, but it was only overnight so I carried on anyway.

    Definitely too bad. I have to say, this sentence rubbed me the wrong way. "Our decision is final, and we won't be entering into any further correspondence on this." Seemed unnecessary in that those who want to argue won't be deterred.
     
  22. I wonder if they still sent me the silver card. If so, i might be able to parlay that into some sort of status match.
