BMA has ordered A330-200s for their Transatlantic service. I do believe they're going into JFK- of course, they'll be changing both their name and color scheme, but they'll be back in the Transatlantic business...

Hi all

The rumour is a name change to British Lion.......but this could all be rubbish.

We will wait and see.

What kind of name is "British Lion"? I honestly think the name change is a stupid idea...

I agree with you - 'British Lion' sounds like some nationalistic charter airline name.

However, they do need a new name. Midland is too parochial even for the routes they operate now, let alone new ones to the States.
