BMI not honoring the free Silver Status

For those who signed up for a BMI account with the free Silver Status promotion, there is bad news. They won’t be honoring the free status and it would be downgraded to Blue status soon. I got the following email today morning:

Dear ‘The Nomad’

We’re pleased to see that you recently joined our Diamond Club frequent flyer programme. However, I’m writing to you because unfortunately the link you used to join was an exclusive by invitation only offer and as noted in our terms and conditions was non transferable.

Regrettably, we will not be honouring the Silver status, and over the next few days your account will be downgraded to Blue status. Our decision is final, and we won’t be entering into any further correspondence on this. On a positive note though, our frequent flyer programme is one of the most generous programmes around, and you only need to earn 16,000 membership status miles to earn a Silver membership. When you fly with us, or any of the Star Alliance airlines, you’ll reach Silver status in no time at all. You’ll also have access to all our offers and promotions, as well as being the first to hear about our great sale fares. We hope you’ll still enjoy the benefits of your Diamond Club membership.

Nothing in the world is free. Sometimes we just get lucky. Though, it doesn’t affect me much, I am sad since I wanted put their Silver card in my collection. But, if you have no status and wanted this for free bags on flights, your only option is to get and use a Credit Card offered by the airline, which gives free bags when used to purchase flight tickets.

    I feel as though this is a pretty rude statement :td:
