The ad, created by Euro RSCG, follows a businessman on trips to Egypt, America, Jordon and Russia.

But instead of visiting the tourist sites, the lonely businessman stays in anonymous hotel rooms with depressing views of motorways and car parks.

During the ad, he talks to a loved one on the phone who is oblivious to the unglamorous nature of business travel.

The spot concludes by featuring the man enjoying the comfort of the bmi business cabin, and introduces the new strapline: "Enjoy some mi time with bmi".
