award hacker says can be booked as one flight- but I take this as incorrect.
Might change this up altogether
Yes, awardhacker is incorrect

Club Europe on a 767 is the same crap as an A320, if not worse

I am aware of that, but I certainly wouldn't say it's worse than the A320.  Still 34" pitch vs. 30" and 20" width vs. 17-18" + headrest.  As long as you book the middle section, guaranteed empty middle seat as well.  Plus roomier cabin all around.

Had such a great time on our honeymoon while in Japan earlier this year and with the great transfer bonus from MR to VA, just booked 2 F seats in ANA for 170K MR and $165 in fees for LAX-NRT RT next fall.

Is $86 all the yq that AA charges for BA flights? or is it cheaper because you have 2 carrier's?

It's cheaper because no Departure tax in LHR and because AA is the transatlantic carrier. BA/BA was way more.
