The formal invitation from British Airways to Diamond Club Elites…

I talked about this a lot yesterday when the BMI Diamond Club to British Airways Tier Match.

Well for those of you who haven’t done it yet, check you inbox – you might find an invite like this:

Text Version:

As part of the transition of bmi into British Airways, from today (1 May 2012), British Airways is inviting you, as a Diamond Club member, to also join the Executive Club at your equivalent tier status level, which will be in addition to your Diamond Club membership.

All you need to do is complete the online tier match form by providing us with your Executive Club membership number and your Diamond Club membership number and tier. To complete the online tier match form please visit

Diamond Club Star Alliance benefits:

We would like to take the opportunity to remind you that your existing Diamond Club membership continues to offer you the following Star Alliance benefits associated with your membership tier level until 31 May 2012.
•You will continue to earn membership status miles and earn and spend destinations miles on bmi and Star Alliance carriers (excluding Lufthansa Group airlines) until 31 May 2012
•For all Star Alliance carriers you will also be able to take advantage of your bmi and Star Alliance status benefits, including lounge access, priority check-in and priority boarding until 31 May 2012
•From 1 June 2012 any benefits associated with your tier membership and the ability to earn status miles and earn and spend destinations miles on Star Alliance airlines will end
•Star Alliance award bookings made before 31 May 2012 will be honoured

For further information including changes to award bookings, retrospective claims and award flight bookings please visit
Business remains as usual for Diamond Club, therefore all other benefits remain unchanged. This includes any benefits associated with the bmi Credit Card Account from MBNA.
We look forward to welcoming you onboard again soon.

For those of you who need to match, it takes about 14 days for the match to take place according to reports, so don’t expect an instant match. Similarly, credentials are sent out after 28 days.

As usual, plan your match carefully so it meets your requirements.

So far, I’ve seen no date that the match must be completed by, but I’m sure an offer like this will not last forever….
