There are also some interesting routings available where you can fly multiple *A members. This one is to STN:

Awesome find! Thanks. I just booked DFW-LHR round trip for ~$2K. DFW-FRA on LH and return is ZRH-DFW on Swiss. I was looking from AUS-LHR and it as almost $2K in economy.

Unfortunately One World does not seem to be matching any of these prices (unless I am missing something).

OW flight from New York to FRA around $2,000 in Business

Thanks for the tip.

I found flights around $2,000 from JFK and EWR through end of August at least (none from DFW, PHL or CLT).

Looks like you may only be able to apply AARP discount to flight on BA metal this time, though I have not tried this yet.

Same prices for BA, AA, and Iberian flights.
