Is mega confusing as they have been through various interactions, split and name changes over the years.

British Midland International which is where it all started ended up being bought and subsumed into British Airways for its valuable Heathrow slots.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brit..._International

Flybmi was the rest of the company with the non Heathrow flights and was at the time of the British Airways purchase spun off into a separate business. Had always operated independently as BMI’s regional airline business.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flybmi

Airline has been basket case for years flying small planes so struggling for the economies of scale of Ryanair or EasyJet so mainly flew to the smallest airports they didn’t want to go to.

Debenhams are still in trouble. Profit warning today has made their share value dip.

I'm amazed they've managed to last this long, but surely it can only be a matter of time before they become just another facet of Mike Ashley's growing empire?

Yeh but he's not going to need a Debenhams, HoF, Sports Direct and so fourth in the same town is he?

Such places just seem to be a relic of a bygone age when we didn't have much choice in shops like we do now, before every town had one of everything.
