Way around high redemption Avios Surcharges

Many of us are paying hundreds of pounds on Long-Haul Avios redemptions and a large portion is from Air Passenger Duty (APD). However, one does not have to pay this duty if they are transiting through the UK for less than 24hrs, even if it is on 2 tickets.

Would this be possible; ticket 1 is ex-UK thats flies into the UK (less than 24hrs), ticket 2 Avios long-haul redemption, fly both legs and claim it back from HM revenue and customs. It should work.
