Looking at a LHR-FRA-LHR flight in January in Y. On the BA website, total cost is GBP117.78 rtn.

Same flights as a QFF award booking is 20000 points and GBP114.78. So you get GBP3.00 of value for your 20000 points (the base fare on the BA website is also GBP3.00).

Is there a worse value QFF redemption possibility?

There have been times when JQ flights have been on sale that the surcharge when booking with points was actually MORE than the cost of the ticket if bought outright with cash.

But yes, the surcharges on BA are ridiculously high. The most recent flight I booked with them (CDG-LHR) had a base fare of £1 or £3 with the rest taxes, fuel surcharges etc.

One of the neat things about the BA exec club is that for short hauls the surcharges are a flat fee. In fact even for QF domestic the surcharges are usually substantially less than QF charges for same redemptions. Shame it isn't reciprocated.
