To redeem BA miles you must book through British Airways even if flying segments operated by another airline. Be aware that you cannot use BA miles to travel on AA transatlantic between the USA and UK. Also, if you want to fly on an airline other than BA you will probably need to redeem by telephone because the BA website only offers partner flights if there is no BA award inventory.
