American Express Membership Rewards has many airline partners including British Airways. For a limited time Amex is offering a 40% bonus if you transfer Amex Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios.
The 40% British Airways Avios bonus is good until September 17. Until then you will get a 1:1.4 transfer rate when you transfer your Amex Membership Rewards points to British Airways Avios. For every 1000 Amex MR points you transfer you will receive 1400 Avios. Transfers can take up to 48 hours to execute.
British Airways is part of the One World airline alliance with American Airlines, so they have airline partners all over the world. The rest of the alliance members are all international airline companies, including Air Berlin (Germany), Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong), Finnair (Finland), Iberia (Spain), Japan Airlines Japan), Lan (Chile), Tam Airlines (Brazil), Malaysia Airways (Malaysia), Qantas (Australia), Qatar Airways (Qatar), Royal Jordanian (Jordan), S7 Airlines (Russia), and SriLankan Airlines (Sri Lanka). If your travel plans do not include destinations in the UK or in Europe, you could still use British Airways Avios to fly on their partner airlines to other worldwide destinations.
