Leading airline, British Midland International (bmi) has unveiled a new Business Class and Economy cabin for its mid-haul routes.

The major refurbishment of the A321 and A320 aircraft includes new leather interiors, new comfortable cushions, as well as a dynamic new lighting system.

Customers travelling to mid-haul destinations such as Addis Ababa, Amman, Beirut, Damascus, Cairo, Freetown, Khartoum, Moscow, Tbilisi, Tehran and Yerevan from Monday 22 November will see the start of an ongoing refurbishment programme for the British airline set to be completed by May 2011.

Brown leather covers with black stitching have been fitted to all seats complementing the recently introduced new carpet and headrest covers. In addition, new multi density foam cushions will be onboard all of these aircraft providing increased customer comfort in both cabins. New lighting, bulk heads and curtains add to the spacious new look and feel to the cabin.
