Air Canada Aeroplan Status Match for bmi Elite Diamond Club members

You may have noticed this in yesterday's Daily Update but it is significant enough to warrant its own blog post. Now that bmi (British Midland) has been taken over by British Airways, the airline is no longer part of the Star Alliance. To try and keep the higher spending elite flyer in the Star Alliance and more so move them over to Air Canada, AC is offering a status match for bmi Diamond Silver and Gold Diamond Club members as follows:

Diamond Club Gold = 2012 Air Canada Elite status
Diamond Club Silver = 2012 Air Canada Prestige status

Here are the details straight from Aeroplan's UK site:
