Trailfinders are advertising a BA CW sale, but the prices aren't particularly attractive to my eye and (if these are sale prices) a long way off the lows we've seen in previous years:

I read somewhere that turbulence is less the further forward you sit (or is that something to do with the champagne available?).

Hello Highlife

Agree with you that an IB / BA routing would be the best; the same PNR seems like a sensible precaution.
