Google the BA discount from AARP. BA & AARP discount

If you are looking at Business Class tickets, google the credit card signup bonus for the BA card. The 100k mile bonus comes and goes

If you are going to pay for seat assignments (BA charges for every-damn-thing), look into credit cards that refund amounts charged by airlines for “extras” - Chase Sapphire Reserve / PenFed has one now / Amex Platinum (but I don’t think that BA is one of Amex’s “allowed airlines” for fee reimbursements).

If you’re buying revenue tickets, get them from Eugene or Venturion here at a discount.

Most people would credit the miles to BA unless you specifically are working for status on AA or QR or something.

Paid with cash money.

Sorry. Airline speak for a normal paid ticket, as opposed to an award ticket.
