Hi

Are these BA flights? If so, the BA Premium Plus American Express earns double points on BA spend (booked direct with BA or BA Hols) which is 3 Avios per £1. This means 42k Avios for the booking. No other BA credit card offers a bonus on BA spending, oddly.

If these are not BA flights, Amex Gold gives 2 points per £1 on all airline bookings (booked direct with the airline). This means you’d get 28,000 Amex Membership Rewards points for the booking. This card is free for Year 1.

£14k credit limit won’t be an issue with Amex as long as your salary is healthy.
