Bad Day for bmi
Not content with upsetting a member of parliament bmi have now upset the ex-wife of a British diplomat serving at the British Embassy in Moscow - they probably upset him a bit too. They 'lost' the couples son at Heathrow while he was connecting from a Moscow to London flight and then to one bound for Manchester. Heather Beal, from Wythenshawe, paid bmi a £130 fee to look after her 13-year-old son Nathan. bmi staff escorted Nathan from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 at Heathrow, but then `forgot' about him - and he was left all alone in the airport. Apparently he only had Russian money with him and had no power on his mobile phone. His 'frantic' mother raised the alarm as she waited for him at Manchester. BMI staff finally tracked him down after he had been left alone for nearly five hours. A bmi spokesman said they are investigating.
