I wonder if it was through Avion that made the difference? Hmmm, now I need to investigate
While you might be getting more points, they are useless if you can't actually use them!
Personally, I have about 350,000 Avion points that I've been saving up for when I want to go to Hawaii when the kids are older and I have to actually buy 4 seats!
Hopefully by then, I'll have enough points to last me forever!
Anyways, I'd probably stick with the regular Avion rather than transferring over to BA...
