1. Re: bmi any good

We have used BMI about three times now and our only complaint is the connection time allowed.

We always have to connect in Chicago and they only give you 90 mintues to go through Immigration (which takes for ever), collect your luggage for transer to the next flight then make your way to another terminal at the opposite end of the airport. The first time we missed the connection by 3 minutes. This delayed us 7 hours as we had to be rebooked and instead of landing in Vegas at 4.30pm it was 11.30pm.

We did have a problem with our luggage not being on the flight when we arrived in Salt Lake City, but whether this was BMI's fault or Chicago Airports fault we couldn't say..

We are using BMI again in September and connecting in Chicago again. We are assuming we shall again miss our connection as Immigration and Security will be particularly vigilant due to the last terrorist problems.

If you are connecting anywhere just be prepared to run as fast as you can to your next terminal gate!!!
