Last year I did a PE flight from LAX-HKG-BLR and back. It bagged me 340 tier points and a ton of avios. When I queried something about how the TPs worked, someone on FT who was from CX told me that the same flights would have barely got me a quarter of the way to Sapphire on CX. On BA I was over half way to retaining (in terms of the number of TPs). Each program has different strengths and weaknesses. The benefit of BA for the timebeing that there is no minimum dollar spend like the US airlines. 15 long-haul economies may have racked up something on AA, but that depends on the underlying fares. If they are super cheap then would be down at their equivalent to Ruby as well.
