How hard can it really be to integrate one British carrier into another? It's not like BD will be operated as an independent entity like IB. I see BD as a non issue.
Its not hard, just a lot of work.
All the pilots and cabin crew need retraining.
All the aircraft need modification, painting, and conversion to the BA AOC
This will all be complete by Christmas.
A319 may look like a BA
A319, but inside they are different. BMI
have more seats, less toilets, different cabin crew seats, different galleys, different emergency equipment, different pax seats etc etc.
The plan is that by Xmas any BA
crew can operate any aircraft.
Lots to do.
By the way the first few BMI
aircraft will emerge in the Olympic Dove livery.
