To the extent that most Air Miles Y availability already came from BAEC inventory, and that the 2-4-1 already existed under Air Miles, I doubt it will make any difference to availability.

What I genuinely cannot understand is why you would want the Lloyds cards to get a voucher at 15k when you get use a BAPP to get a voucher at 10k (albeit with a fee) which can be used on WT+, J and F as well as Y. The only logic would be if you could put a huge sum through on the Mastercard, say a tax bill - but then you can now get a M&M or BMI Visa paying 1 mile per 1, so you are still sacrificing a lot of miles on that 15k spend.

That said, you might as well get the Premium Card given the fee in year 1 is only 25 and you get 10,000 Avios after spending 1,500. The issuer is Lloyds so unlikely to clash with any existing cards in your wallet.
