So farewell BMI. You used to be British Midland, but now you will just be part of Lufthansa.
In the days when I did a lot of flying, I was a silver member of your diamond club - although its only real virtue was to permit access to the business lounge, thus avoiding the hoi polloi. But the stewardesses on all those flights between Edinburgh and Brussels were cheerful souls and the flights were usually on time.
So thanks for the memories.
