It could be your Firewall.Security programs.your ISP. So your best bet would be to use another computer or try another browser like fireox.

Sometimes if you type the address into the address bar it will work that way.

Or try this and put the BMI Baby address into it.

This is the one for Nottingham.If Birmingham remove the Nottingham and type in Birmingham.

click here

Once again if they don't work try typing the address straight on to the address bar.

Clear your internet cache (temporary internet files) and try again. Tools - Internet Options - General tab - Browsing History - Delete and just have Temp Internet files ticked in the lower list. Tick preserve favorites website data too.

There are many reasons that Internet Explorer could be encountering this issue. Some examples are connectivity to your ISP, a firewall blocking your connection, or your networking device not functioning properly. Here are some things that you can try:

Method 1: Run the Network Diagnostics tool in Internet Explorer:-

1. Start Internet Explorer, and then try to access the Web page that is displaying the error message.
2. On the page that displays an Internet Explorer error message, click the Diagnose Connection Problems link. The Network Diagnostics tool will run. When the tool has finished running, it will report one of the following results:

It was unable to find a problem.
It has detected a problem. Additionally, the tool will provide guidance about the next steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.

3. Click IP Address, and note the IP Address. You may need it for future troubleshooting.
4. Follow the steps in the Network Diagnostics tool to fix any connection problems.
5. Start Internet Explorer.

If you receive the same error message, go to the next method.

First of all, your IE is fine, and does not cause any problems.

Secondly using the method above is irrelevant when fixing a problem, because any idiot can figure out how to run a wizard.

My bet, your connection is down. Check and reset Routers( may have become static ), or check if your network cable is plugged in and you are currently on the network, or if you are just using a dongle,= it maybe a signal failure or a IP clash, dissconnect - reconnect

Could it be as simple as the BMI site has s ' A technical problem', and is off air for a while-- It happens, however I have just run it on my system as it seems OK now. Try again

pete h is able to view other sites, only the bmi one, so this is probably not a connection problem.

i have tried another laptop and can connect to the bmibaby site ok. why would it go off on my other one as i was working on booking the flight?

It could be as somebody said, you need to have a good clean out. use both cleaner top left and the registry cleaner also, works very well & quite safe to use>> click here
