US travellers get utterly gouged on business and first class fares ex US. ………………true if booking full fare fully flex but then you never get $675 J class one way out of LHR as is currently publically available for many US to UK and Europe routes. Nor do you get the sort of mileage sign up benefits on cards. In the Uk the branded card is Amex and that still has problems with acceptance here quite unlike the USA. There was never an offer in the UK giving 50 or 100 thousand miles away just to sign up.
Competition in the USA drives these deals but here there appears to be little sign of that here in the UK.
