And so its back to British Midland

Why they ever changed to BMI I will not know, but I notice LH have provided confirmation that BMI will from now on be known as British Midland International.

I did think it was odd to see an advert last week in the press for BMI that had British Midland International written under BMI.

I remember the rebranding well.
They used that airey fairey language that the i in bmi could stand for anything. A sure sign that it hasn't been thought through. So good for LH for bringing British Midland back.

At the time there were rumours that British Midland was going to rebrand as Bluebird, itself a stronger name than bmi.

bmi still deny that the renaming will affect them however, here, and I wonder what this holds for bmi baby...

Does this mean they'll have new livery ... heck BMI hasn't managed yet to repaint the last but one liveried planes ...
There's a plane at JFK, to fly you back from far away
all those dark and frantic transatlantic miles

All the BMI staff at the time claimed it stood for "Bishop's Mental Institution".

I personally think that the cabin crew sound silly when they say "Thank you for flying bmi."
