We've always transferred out points to BA and used them to fly to Asia on Cathay. Can't really complain as we have just booked our 5th and 6th tix in First Class using these points. However, if it is true and the sky is falling and life as we know is going on end with the introduction of Avios, which AMEX partner would be the one to work towards transferring to? The only partner they advertise that I have any real knowledge of is Hawaiian and I think their awards are too expensive. For me it perhaps looks like Air France, ANA or Singapore Airlines. Anyone have any thoughts on which direction they will go? I'm also wondering what direction AMEX is going to take with partners to ensure there is sufficient transfer partners to keep us all interested in spending with them.
