I think the order of the airports should go JFK>EWR>LGA

Why out of all the airports Zurich is in bold?

I could add CX, think it's worthwhile? What other routes is it useful for?
According to your new chart it seems fairly useful  :)

How would I weigh the value of the points though?
If AA is 15 and LA in 20 then which goes first?

I believe most would want to see the lowest base fare. In your case if AA is 15 that would = 22.5 LA to be even, if it is 20k LA, I would say it takes priority.

One more comment I think, I'm not sure but QF 744 is not equipped with F cabin, the Sydney flight that originated NY is the 744, therefore if you book this flight with Avios you won't have the option of F, so technically there's no way of booking QF in F with BA Avios and put the rate of a single flight.

Indeed. I wrote them off when this happened: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/2247
But with all the devals they're pretty sweet...at least until they deval.

At the time it was considered devastating. 60K for TATL J was heaven.

Wow, what rock have I been living under that I didn't know how much CX saves in BA YQ compared to everyone else (aside from LA)

Make a post about it. (And give the guy a HT)
A post like that is original. Nobody has that stuff.
