40k plus $750 in YQ it does not make sense to use miles at all.

So the best way NYC to LHR in coach is paying cash.

I don't know. You could always try to book and find out.

I think that some of the questions in this thread could be answered by playing around with the Economical Excursionist Travel Tool- a fun way to pass the time! It doesn't help with YQ or availability though
