BMI award redemption level increase effective May 1st,2009

Via View from the Wings, Effective May 1st, 2009, BMI FIRST CLASS award redemption will increase by 25% and First Class award flights with Lufthansa will also incur a surcharge of 10,000 destinations miles for each one-way award flight.

First Class award flights

Miles only Miles plus Cash
Current x 2

Miles x2 Cash x2

From 1 May 2009 x 2.5

Miles x2.5 Cash x2.5

Not too bad at all consider BMI still offers the best rate on redemption and one way award for half RT. As for LH first class, BMI is not allow member to redeem LH first class award using C+P option, if the new surcharge of 10000 is for also good for C+P, that's acutally an improvement.

Still, no airline program can beat BMI diamond club
