(Hat tip to Ghetto IFE)
BMI will be leaving Star Alliance on April 18th, which isn’t surprising since they were purchased by British Airways. I can’t find any additional information, so while I’m guessing that means you will not be able to redeem some of their fantastic Cash + Points awards after that, we just don’t know yet. If their frequent flyer program is merged into BA’s, for those looking for short-haul awards (especially in Europe) the charts aren’t that far off – both offer great low-priced awards for short-haul travel.
(I’ll pass along more information when we have it, but if you wanted to burn those BMI miles on Star, I’d get on it now…)
