Does anyone know of any other cheap ways to get BA status?

*cough* AA A-fares *cough*

Seriously, fly to LHR on a cheap AA/BA fare then fly a couple of LHR-MAN RT's in C for the BA segment requirements.

The rest of the flights can be made on AA. Look for LAS-LAX-SFO-LAX-LAS A fares. Last year AA had them on sale for $500. Quickest and cheapest 240 Tier points you can earn in the US.

You could also book LAX-ATL(via DFW) for around $600 and 240 points. That route is frequently cheap because of the DL Airtran battle.
