Reply To: Cheapest Way to BA Silver/Gold

Don’t forget that American Airlines First Class transcontinental flights net 210 tier points each way. So West Coast to MIA even on a two class aircraft can net a lot of tier points often for good value. Just be careful that the ticket is bought in First Class, not business class which gives the right to sit in domestic First Class. Otherwise, I seem to remember BA used to classify the route between Abu Dhabi and Muscat as international allowing 140 tier points but I see that has been discontinued and it now shows as just 40 tier points.
