I’m totally confused by the whole question here

The way to work out if something is “cheaper” isn’t just the cash element but the total value of points and cash.

I’d use 0.8-1p personally and no less than 0.7p as you can get that via nectar.

Then remember the flexibility of Avios flights cancel for £35 Vs basically non refundable.

Obviously cash flights being the same as just the taxes isn’t a good deal but honestly considering cash fares at the moment is truly surprised that situation exists right now!
