I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?

Usually best to transfer to airline points (check rates before you transfer!!) for best redemption, especially if you want to upgrade

I think it’s better through Amex travel (1000 points = $100). I would be transferring to BA (1000 points = 1000 avios). 3700 avios is $200 on BA website

Guessing that’s economy too. You should be able to find business class awards for not many more points than that. Using ANA points on Star Alliance carriers, roundtrip business class awards between the US and Europe are 85k miles (though depending on the carrier, you may need to pay fuel surcharges). You can transfer 85K AMEX points to ANA and you’ll have 85k ANA points
