I don't really see why someone should necessarily be able to fly to London in first class for basically the cost of opening two credit cards.
No different than free hotel rooms with SPG or other programs. A few credit card promotions can give you a week in Bora Bora or Tahiti...
Airlines have simply decided to invent all sorts of fees on award bookings. Apart from immigration,airport and security fees, i still think award bookings should be almost free...like my last JFK-YYZ award for $2.50 or MEL-BME in J for $25.
