BMI Business Class Review

BMI has had a tough financial year, but are getting rave reviews from business travellers for the quality of their service.  Intrepid reporter Mark Southern packed a notebook and pen in his hand luggage to test it for himself.

As first published in The Exchange Magazine, 2011

British Midland has come a long way over the past decade, and has recently refitted it’s Business Class across its fleet.  And what a good job they’ve done.

Having the advantage of surveying the competition for what works and what doesn’t, BMI has created what just may be the fastest business class check-in service you’ll ever experience, taking less than five minutes from airport arrival to relaxing in the lounge above the gate you’ll fly from.  For the regular traveller weary of such trivialties as checking-in, this is a revelation, and one that cannot be praised more highly.

The Heathrow lounge is very nice and presentable and, once again, service has been prioritised over every other feature, meaning you’ll feel like the VIP you are, and this top quality service is echoed on-board where you are fussed over just about the right amount to be pleasing and not irritating.

Entertainment-wise, choices could be a little better, but this is a small niggle and overall you’re left with a sensation that you’re flying with an efficient boutique airline, with first-class service, and a route-map which is growing by the month.

We love BMI’s Business Class, and you will too.
