How to Fly First Class for Less than Business on British Airways to Europe

Amex, Capital One, and Chase points collectors score on opportunities to London and beyond

I got an email the other day from BA that I didn’t quite understand.

So I did some research to figure out what BA was up to. I noticed that off-peak First Class from New York to London is priced at 68,000 miles each way (136,000 round-trip), while Business Class off-peak is priced at 80,000 each way (160,000 round-trip). In other words, First Class round-trip is 24,000 miles less than Business Class.
