    RE: ‘It made no difference on British Airways American Express 2-4-1 voucher bookings because those had to originate in the UK’ – yes they have to originate in UK but you can book 2 one-ways on a 241 voucher. Book outbound initially with the voucher, then book the return when it becomes available online (at full avios price) then call to have the voucher applied and get half of the return leg avios refunded.
