Just a quick question, what will be BD's last proper flights (as in last flights operated as "bmi" and not already transferred over to BA)? The reason is I want to try and get on a final flight with them (yes I have left this a tad late)...

I just flew on one today from LHR to TXL. It was aircraft G-DBCA. Last week I was on G-DBCD and it was in BA colors. G-DBCA was in BMI colors with a Lufthansa interior.

How long was BMI in existence? I'm not sure that I ever saw a BMI plane in person, but I remember photos of BMI 707s and Viscounts. It's depressing how many old guard carriers are disappearing.

What we now know as BMI was founded in 1938 as Air Schools Ltd.

Renamed: Derby Aviation in 1948, Derby Airways in 1959, British Midland Airways in 1964, BMI British Midland in 2001, BMI Airways Ltd in 2003.

Confusingly, this was a Lufthansa service, operated by bmi! Commercial control of the flight is held by Lufthansa, bmi are just a wet lease charter provider.
