How Long Will BMI's Diamond Club Remain?

With Lufthansa advising today they are no longer putting BMI up for sale, I was just curious to know what the long term plans are for BMI's frequent flyer programme - Diamond Club...

Even though BMI has suffered a bit of an identity crisis and lack of direction recently, I have always thought their FF plan is one of the best and most generous in the industry. (I'm happy to be corrected!)...

I notice every other Star Alliance airline and some others in Europe have all adopted Lufthansa's, "Miles and More" program. Leaving only BMI with their own independent program.

Have I missed something? Has SAS cancelled their EuroBonus, Turkish cancelled their Miles and Smiles, Spanair cancelled Spanair Plus, and TAP cancelled Victoria?

 embarrassed 

I am now feeling a fool!

For some reason when writing the post, I had my goggles on! Completely forgot about SAS, Spanair and TAP.

The airlines I was thinking of were, Brussels Airlines, LOT, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, Adria Airways, Croatia Airlines, JAT and Aegean.

Lufthansa advising today that nobody wanted to buy BMI.

...at the price they wanted.  Wink

Some would be surprised how tantalisingly close a sale was.
