This is a great opportunity for those looking to take short haul domestic or last minute flights on American Airlines as British Airways is a oneworld partner.  I particularly like British Airways and American Airlines for short haul trips as they discount short distance flights.  British Airways is also great for booking last minute travel as they do not have a late booking fee, saving you $75 per ticket.

To get the best conversion we suggest using Singapore Airlines to book a reward flight on United as they are both part of the Star Alliance.  Economy
