Doesn't this depend on where one is heading? When I made intra-asia bookings, I usually end up using either BA miles (as long as it is non-stop) or AA miles (especially if i need to get around the married segment issue). I found avios to be better than AM. AA is somewhat comparable but AA EXP gives me 245% vs 125% given by MPC so the fact that their redemption rates are comparable means AA rate is actually about half of AM ...
My redemptions are for the usual suspects - QR, CX, JL or MH - so I think YQ charges are more or less the same for all three miles. I don't think I've ever redeemed a BA flight.
