Well, the company knows that BMED have created a go foothold in this market. The service is great and also a lot of the crew can speak the languages from these parts. To switch to mainline would be bad for BMED and I think you might find that BA have signed a contract with BMED so that BMED won't have the route taken off them.
BMED has been one of these airlines that you hear of little but have been doing well unlike some carriers although this could be because of the rich destinations it flys to. (but not all of them though are rich middle east countries).

Quoting LHSTR (Reply 3): I am wondering how BA is able to compete in the high Yield market on such routes, as the competitors offer a real C-Class cabin.
Have you ever experienced B|MED's C service? Sure, it may not be the same as BA's on the long-haul fleet but it's definitely not the same as Club Europe or any competitive European C class (i.e. LH or AF).
