I'm rather confused reading all the various sites with avios/tier points confusion - which FF system gives the best returns? Should we put it thru on our BAEC cards (spent last of the miles recently) or start a (new) OneWorld card with Qatar?

Any advice would be most welcomed. Thanks.
Hello roarss and welcome to FT and the BA forum.

The answer to this question depends very much on your personal travel profile and objectives. e.g.

- do you value miles/points (Avios or equiv) for redemption over gaining status (tier points or equiv) ?
- do you fly enough to gain any meaningful status ?
- who and where do you normally fly
- are you primarily a leisure or business traveller ?
- where do you live and do you have other routes to earning points in the various programs, e.g. credit cards, shopping, etc
- etc, etc, etc

For instance, AA may be better for some people depending on their profile.

There is also a very useful sticky thread over on the Oneworld forum:
