I've taken my OH and 2 friends BA First class to the states twice. Using 2 x companion vouchers each time. Admittedly its from work travel points and using the Amex card but worth it.
4 x First tickets to San Francisco £64k or ~£4k taxes
4 x First tickets to Boston £45k or ~£4k taxes

Great example of a pointless post. So if you weren't using your work travel points you wouldn't have gone anywhere.
Why do people post such pointless posts?
Yes, with a lot of these upgrade deals you have to pay the amount completely in Avios. I guess it is to stop you from flying all the way to Australia or Argentina with them with a minimum spend!
It's less pointless than hanging around forums critiquing replies - yours is a meta pointless post.
I have introduced several colleagues to using the right credit cards for business expenses to maximise the returns.. thus saving themselves some money on holidays... this is really the point of MSE - being savvy in your money management and using the levers of your situation for maximum benefit.
JFYI I put every penny of personal spending that is possible on the BA Amex to earn points so it isn't purely work travel points.
Sounds like there were no reward flights available for the flight you wanted. As the article suggests, booking as soon as the flights become available is key.
