Why is it so much cheaper to fly Europe to US round trip than visa versa?

THe Dollar is strong right now making a trip to the US more expensive than ever. Also it's all about $$. People in the US have more $$ typically. Business budgets etc. No different than why r/t tickets from south America are cheaper if you originate in South America.

Important notes ...

Code:
Category 2: Day/Time restrictions

OUTBOUND -
PERMITTED TUE/WED/THU ON EACH TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.
INBOUND -
PERMITTED MON/TUE/WED ON EACH TRANSATLANTIC SECTOR.

Category 3: Seasonal restrictions

PERMITTED 09JAN 23 THROUGH 31MAR 23 FOR EACH TRANSATLANTIC
SECTOR.

Category 15: Sales restrictions

RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE ON/BEFORE 25OCT 22.
Despite the published 25Oct deadline, I'd suggest those who are interested in it book it quickly.

There is an accompanying I- fare series around for about 1700 GBP.

This is an interesting rationale. For decades the was much stronger than the USD but you never saw BA, AA or UA (when they had international F) offer cheap First Class fares originating from the US-London. Even when the was stronger it was still common that J & F fares were cheaper to fly UK/EU-US than to originate in the US.

SJC is also available even though SFO is not. Very good fare. Wish I could take advantage but I need basically this fare a bit later in the year.

If you wish to book it via BA.com, you would pay for the ticket in GBP since the website would default the point of sale to the departure point of your itinerary ( in this case London ).
It's also correct that the BA Chase or AARP discounts only work for ex-USA tickets so it wouldn't work for this case.

If you wish to pay in USD, you could use a travel agency based in the USA that could charge this itinerary in the USA or call the BA US line and ask the itinerary to be priced in USD.

Mexico City says hi for 2,442, this rate was also available to MEX back in early September...

Google Flights

These fares credit VERY nicely to Alaska as they are in A class which credit at 250% EQMs and 450% for A class in RDMs so a base member would earn 27705 RDMs and 49869 EQMs so with a few Alaska segments you would get oneworld Ruby status.

Europe is a much more competitive market than the US, which is essentially a three-way monopoly owned by AA, UA and DL for intl. traffic.

I think you got the RDM vs EQM flipped around.

if people are looking for BA first, there's a fare from YYZ to Johannesburg for ~$4600 USD

The price is set by the market. Americans appearing willing to pay more to travel to Europe than Europeans appear willing to pay to travel to the US.
