Eco is the same  (12,500)
Business is the same (25,000)
First book with AA (32,500 vs BA charges 37,500)

However, within 21 days the $75 AA fee applies so you have to make your own calculations
Or use BA with no close in fee

FB availability is much better when using FB miles period. Nothing to do with TLV.

That's quite a general question.

I realize I wasn't clear, but anyway, the answer I was looking for is 10K FB or DL for a OW in Y but there will be some fees. A paid flight could be as little as $70, which would mean less than 7K UR/MR through their respective malls. (Yes, I know that's not a good use of the points, but just listing the option.)
