My original question, was is there any best way to route this trip to maximize miles. I am not looking to go out of my way. Some of the possibilities I saw were routed through LHR or Zurich. Sorry if I did not present it clearly.
on a discount coach fare, your options are pretty limited. you'll want AA codings wherever possible. BA coded flights will net you only 25% redeemable miles (125 minimum redeemable miles, but 500 minimum q-miles and q-points, however). IB is 30%. EI is 0%.
