I suggest you read through this: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...os-2016-a.html

You can only upgrade one class, so from economy to premium economy longhaul.

Ignore the Tier Points - those are for status and can't be redeemed for anything. Award flights with Avios are priced by distance. 25,000 is enough for a one way between London and many USA airports. Or it will get a lot of intra-Europe flights, which start at 4,500 Avios one way. You can also use them to upgrade a purchased flight except for some discounted economy fares. Note that if the plane you're on has premium economy you will only be able to upgrade economy to premium economy as only 1 cabin upgrade is permitted. Upgrade pricing also varies by distance. Your Avios should be enough for a one way upgrade on a flight to the USA. http://www.britishairways.com/en-us/...ing-with-avios

It now starts at 4,000 avios for an off-peak redemption.

Along with the link nux posted, and his note about your cross-posting, you may want to ask for your thread to be moved to the BA forum, where you'd probably have a much wider audience to assist you:
