During the late fall through early spring (end of schedule) there’s amazing American Airlines award availability on the Dallas Fort-Worth – London Heathrow route. This is true both for business and first class, and it’s not just for one or two passengers either. There are as many as 5 out of 8 first class seats being offered as awards on a majority of dates.
This is for four passengers in business class during January and February.
This is for four passengers in business class during February and March.
This is for four passengers in first class during February and March.
Generally speaking when award space is available, upgrades into that class of service are available too. In fact, upgrade space is usually even more available than awards.
American’s Boeing 777-300ERs (their only planes with first class) operate most of the flights on the route though there’s also a Boeing 777-200 with fully flat direct aisle access seats and no first class cabin.

In addition to booking these flights with American AAdvantage miles you can redeem Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles. You can redeem Etihad Guest miles. And of course other oneworld frequent flyer programs are possible as well but will add fuel surcharges to these awards.
If you book via AAdvantage your flights to and from Dallas on American are included for no additional miles (if you can find saver space) and your flights beyond London as well.
Right now my internet connection is poor and I haven’t checked other routes, let me know whether you find anything else.
