    Welcome @Andrew Clark - Personally I try to avoid LHR whenever I can, but that's me.

    Are you going carry-only? Otherwise I think on the ticket via BCN you'd have to claim and re-check your bag, right? Changing from LH to IB?

    If that's the case I'd do the Aer Lingus flight to avoid LHR and to keep from having to deal with the whole security thing again.

    Andrew, just clarifying.

    First option is around $300 + 14,000 points in Economy
    Second option is $260 +13,000 points in Economy
    Third option is $410 + 5,000 points in Premium Economy

    I've flown American, British, Air France and Alitalia transatlantic in Premium Economy. While you won't be blown away (and I've admittedly never flown Iberia), I'd argue each one is well worth the $100 more in cash and 7k-8k less in points.

    If it makes a difference, the BCN-BOS flight is LEVEL operated by Iberia. It's not super clear if their premium economy is on par with others, specifically in the "are the drinks free" category.
