Taken from bmi press release

Passenger volumes in September for bmi and bmibaby increased by 18 per cent, with bmi seeing a rise of 12 per cent in the full service sector of the business. Load factors also increased by 8 per cent to 72 per cent.

Domestic services, in particular, benefited dramatically with routes where there is strong competition from low cost carriers performing exceptionally well.

Services between Heathrow and Belfast saw an increase of 67 per cent with services from Heathrow to Manchester increasing by 28 per cent. Scotland also performed well, with flights to Edinburgh showing a 24 per cent increase and Glasgow 14 per cent compared to September last year.

Transatlantic services from Manchester fared well in September with an overall increase of 57 per cent. The number of passengers flying to Washington rose by 38 per cent with Chicago enjoying a massive rise of 72 per cent.

A truly wonderful performance...we're it not for the fact that the period they are comparing against included the closure of US airspace for days and all of the other implications of the Sept-11th attacks.

Extremely poor analysis on bmi's part not to adjust or show a true like with like comparison.
