As a staff member for the only UK rival to BA
on transatlantic from London, I can assure you that people don't always fly BA
/AA otherwise we'd have gone out of business.
I do support your comments about the stingy nature of points earning (especially in Y) on most oneworld carriers. Prior to joining VS
I was (and still am) a UA
mileage plus premier exec (S/A gold) as UA
give miles for EVERYTHING, even Ted flights. VS
Flying club is also VERY generous, minimum miles is 100% in economy and a whopping 125% for Y,B classes on USA routes. (not 25% like you get from a certain other british carrier on cheap Y seats!)

Myself, I fly according to price first alongside convenience, then service, but least of all free miles.
I dare say that you are not alone there, price is one the most important factors for the holidaymaker, but I think you should seriously consider joining an FF
and sticking to an airline that you like, once you have a few trips up your sleeve, the rewards can be pretty good.
