Nice opportunity to obtain British Airways status at a very affordable rate. Executive club uses Tier Points as their Status collecting tool. Bronze (Oneworld Ruby) requires 300 Tier Points, Silver (Oneworld Sapphire) 560 TPs and Gold (Oneworld Emerald) 1500 TPs.
Some solutions as the SriLankan run allows you to obtain Oneworld Sapphire status for under 1200, but with this Travel Hack you can get it at an even lower rate
American Airlines published one-way fares between Washington DC, Boston or New York to Raleigh but with the chance to have 3 segments per flight. So you can do DCA-PHL-CLT-RDU for $137 and collect 120 Tier Points.
You could do 5 of these trips and collect 600 Tier Points, you would just need a hop across the pond and 4 BA segments to obtain Oneworld Sapphire status (and lounge access on domestic AA flights) for under USD 700. We used sample dates in March 2021.
