If on separate tickets, then outbound BA won't interline to SAA (they can, but policy says they won't). bmi policy also says they won't interline on separate tickets I think, but in my experience there is a chance that they will within *A. Even if they won't then it's still an easier transfer than BA/SA.

For the return, then it is down to SAA's policy on this and not BA (as the 2nd carrier, BA have no control over it). Hopefully someone with knowledge/experience of SAA's policies will be along shortly to advise on that, otherwise you could check their forum or ask SAA directly maybe?

If you find out that SAA will interline to BA on the return, then perhaps the best of both worlds is bmi outbound for ease, and BA on the way back for the TPs/Avios and lounge.
