Budget around 1k, which is what WTP in BA costs direct from LHR, happy to start anywhere in Europe.
I did look at something simple like starting in INV, to add a few points, for actually less money, but do need to stick to One World.
Many thanks,
Following on from this, after much searching using ITAMatrix, the best I can come up with in Club is as follows, Starting in Milan, 1,215, itinerary below.
Can anyone do any better?

Many thanks,
