Was easy from Australia.I do what amounts to a Circle Asia fare twice a year.Used to always be on QF stock until I found I could do basically the same using BA F between SYD and SIN for less than what a QF all J fare costs.And those 2 trips without anything else get me to BAEC gold.

now only £1 to cancel any European redemptions.
Well, that depends on whether you went for the more Avios, less Money option, which in my opinion is quite poor value.

I'm a BAEC gold btw, who lives in Australia and the UK (families and citizenship in both).

BA can be easier to earn status on than Qantas, but it depends on your flying patterns.
The four segment rule has had odd application over the last years, so no idea if they currently apply it.
Above gold with BA for an Australian flyer isn't really worth it unless visiting UK frequently.
Also keep in mind BA may change the scheme at any time, so LTG might not be as attractive when you're getting close. I certainly hear rumours about mooted changes frequently.
