    One of the best uses of British Airways Avios (even post-devaluation) is for shorthaul travel within the US, given that Executive Club has a distance based award chart. Paying just 4,500 Avios for a one-way flight of fewer than 650 miles is a value that's tough to beat. You can typically search and book awards for travel on American and US Airways through British Airways' award search tool. However, at the moment it looks like Avios tickets for travel on American aren't bookable through British Airways' website. US Airways tickets seem bookable as usual, however. The other strange thing is that if you call to book such an award, the agents might not initially see the correct space as being available, since it's not coming up automatically. Instead, they have to manually go in and try to find the flights. If an agent is able to do that, they should access to the same saver level space that American makes available to their own members.
