The 'outrageous' fees BTW are not because of LHR - they are because the flights were on BA. If you looked for non-BA options you would see ff award tix on AA are much cheaper.

In fact I've got a four leg R-T on AA starting this coming Monday and my total out of pocket is $127 (taxes). That is because I specifically eliminated BA flights from my searches.

Right, but before it was sometimes impossible to avoid them on award flights.

The mile-saver flights are almost always on BA to/from the UK. If you opt to pay more miles (anytime & business) you can get lower cash-priced AA flights and often fewer stops. I resigned myself to paying more miles last trip and flew AA all 4 segments.
