Looks like BA just eliminated the 4500 Avios each way tier. It was raised to 7500 OW. A couple of other changes as well. Effective Feb 2, 2016.
It is. I have burned more AA miles in the last year than I can ever recall. I am not panicking; I am using them. Really I am in major burn mode. I have been booking a lot this last week using AA, BA, Aeroplan and Korean Air. Guess it's the change of season here or something.I'm trying not to panic over what AA is going to do. That's the last big shoe to fall.
And there it is alreadySurprisingly good post from r/Churning to slightly reduce the devaluation for trips <1000 miles RT but only on AA.

I'm not sure what you are asking so forgive me if I answer in a way that doesn't answer your question. BA prices award flights by segment. The only benefit in a connection versus a stopover might be in a reduction of taxes. For example, it will lower taxes by having a connection at LHR instead of a stopover. I'm unaware of a US airport that would be comparable. Thus, you can book your award into a US airport, have a 6 hour or a 6 month stop and travel onward. It won't impact the price/Avios charged.So stopovers in the US don't count as long as flight does not start or terminate in the US? Would it be possible to make a super long stopover?
