As for European travel, you're absolutely right. My wife and I are looking domestically, to South America, and to Hawaii for future awards. BA's fees are (almost literally) insane, and after our poor AB experience we're ruling them out too.
I'm single, so 20k or 30k vs 50k to sit in business, it make sense for me (after the devaluation i will have to consider that since we won't accumulate RDM as fast as we used to)..but when 2 ppl involved, those difference make a different.. And yeah from the 2 round trips i experience with AB on business, i was able to choose seats ahead of time..
