As I’ve mentioned before, BA Avios are of great value for their short haul redemption options. I was able to avoid the pending blizzard and escape to the Caribbean last minute using an AAdvantage MileSAAver award booked via British Airways Avios. The total cost was $47.50 in taxes and only 12,500 Avios points (instead of 17,500 AA miles) each way.
Remember, flights must have MileSAAver availability in order to be bookable for Avios redemptions. You can easily check award availability at AA.com before heading over to BA’s website for purchasing.
