Update: This rumour has been confirmed. More details here.
Now that the takeover of BMI by IAG is complete, it is being reported that British Airways are to announce a status tier match for BMI Diamond Club members who want to join the BA Executive Club. The rumoured details are
- Diamond Club Silver to BAEC Silver
- Diamon Club Gold to BAEC Gold
- Miles to Avios transfer on a 1:1 basis from 3rd July
These details are not yet confirmed and we will post more details when we have them, but if true, these are very generous benefits, both from a status tier level and the 1:1 rate for miles to Avios.
For new BAEC members wanting to ramp up their Avios further, they should also check out the Amex Platinum Charge Card.
