BA often has availability, but I don't consider 80K miles AND $1,000 much of an award.
Would need a step-up in awards/fares from EI and AY to circumvent BA. Would also need EI to expand at a faster pace on the WC. Which doesn't look like such a promising ask either way. I wonder if the trade commission would let LH buy back Condor though, as with the loss of AB there is less of competition in that space from Germany. And LH was even scrutinized for trying to buy AB slots and routes.
