I agree that 15k for €100 is not the greatest value but in this case I wanted to get the total cost below £1000 per person.
However, I think the part pay with avios is going to be the way forward as availability for redemptions is not always there. By using 15k this time and receiving 18.5k in return, this basically I can enjoy a permanent £100 off any flight. With accumulation via credit cards and other channels, I can effectively increase my permanent discount to about £150 off every flight. Given that I tend to spend between £900 and £1300 per transatlantic flight in premium classes, such a permanent discount is no small thing especially if I take advantage of sales.
