Very good program, one of the best within StarAlliance.
If you don't know which program you want to join within SA, BMI diamond club offers very good earning scheme and an outstanding redemption scheme (the miles are worth a lot more than with Miles&More for example).

They also have a "family membership" program, which means you can combine miles of up to 8 different members to make a redumtion, great if you usually travel in group or as a family but not too often.

What's more: Miles don't expire, one of the only ones in StarAlliance that have unlimited mileage validity along with Continental OnePass.

BMI is renowned for slowness of posting miles earned with partners, if at all...

bmi Diamond Club is great.
Most business class earn 200%, but I rated the Ability to earn points 4 because for some airlines they only give 100% for business class (like Air Canada).
Redeeming miels is not very easy - you will have to call their call center for most of their flights. It stinks - it's located in India, the represents dont speak english well and they are not helpful. However, they do allow stopovers and one-ways award flights. They don't allow domestic F in the USA operated by US or UA when connecting from int'l business class (on awards).

This programme would have been best in the UK (and probably best among non US based Star Alliance carriers) if not their BMI's dodgy computer systems. Miles randomly get posted automatically for BMI own flights, let alone flights with their partners. To claim miles members are supposed to mail their boarding passes (yes, by standard post; scans are not accepted). With BMI's ambition to be UK's second airline they could have done better.

2X/3X earning on many business class/first class fares but often 50% or no earnings on economy fares. One way award redemptions including stop over. Cash and miles awards. Up to 625% earnings on F fares after reaching mileage threshold.
