British Airways uses a distance based award chart. Which means that the cost of an award is based on the distance that you fly.
Here is the award chart for British Airways
Keep in mind; partner flights within North America from 1 to 650 miles price at the 651 to 1,150 price level. So Zone 1 prices are not available for partner flights within North America.
As you can see, short haul flights can offer an incredible value. And that value is maximized for short haul flights outside of North America since Zone 1 prices are super low compared to all other award costs on other airlines.
