Ok, so it happens, the return flight was cancelled and rerouted via Stavanger with SAS. Outbound flight was ok, apart from an issue with the door, which required and engineer to visit - thereby a slight delay. Aircraft was comfortable enough, with adequate legroom on the double row of seats. Snack consisted of a biscuit and coffee. The attraction of...

BMI departed in time in both directions, and the Embraer 135 aircraft was comfortable for its size. The cabin crew was personable and friendly. Enjoyable ‘small airline’ experience.

The short flight from Brussels to Nuremberg was a great experience. The little plane was clean and one cabin crew member was friendly. A drink and a snack for free during the flight. For an one houre flight it was great.

Having flown to both Duesseldorf and Munich in the last month with this airline, I was impressed with their great service. The planes are on the small side as the route does not justify a large Boing but they are always manned by one person who is exceptionally friendly. The only change I would make is to adjust the food....

The price went up 500£ AFTER I pushed the pay button with all the credit card numbers. They said the price category was sold out but only AFTER I went all the steps with information included all my card information. This should not be possible at all in 2019. Probably have to cancel my credit card after this. Stay fare...

Having flown the EMA-BRU route 8 times in the last year, I can confirm that BMI is always a good choice! Their staff are the best, their aircrafts are a delight and they are just so much better than "budget airlines". Brought along my golfclubs a few times without any hassle or extra charges. Even had a last minute cancellation...
