Nah. I'd rather have the new J for less miles.

Overall great post, lots of time went into it. I would think sorting in the box by the miles needs, instead of by name of airline would be better. Also maybe would be good to highlight a little more how LA is 1.5x worth more than the others. So their prices are slightly inflated. Sort of like what you do when you make an Amex to Elal transfer chart.

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

You may want to consider highlighting in some fashion (different color/highlight) the most attractive option to each destination.

Also the colorblind people get angry when I use colors.
Guess I could use italics though. Or I could order them.

Bah. Too much time on this.

"the colorblind people get angry when I use colors"

Tell me that's an attempt at humor and not a complaint you actually received. If it is, I'm taking a break from life.

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  :)

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.

Crazy how attractive CX program is especially after the AA devalue.
