Talks between the unions and British Airways on BMI job losses will start tomorrow morning. BMI routes, livery and the schedule will survive until the end of summer. British Airways aims to incorporate everything, including painting 25 planes, by the autumn.
British Airways' takeover of bmi could result in 1,200 redundancies. Jobs facing the axe are at bmi's head office at Castle Donington in Leicestershire and at regional airports.
