Is your flight about 5-7 days away?

This is an internal BA reference code. Apparently this is a BABS reference (for the BA departure system) and is the one that gets printed on your checked bag tag. Interestingly the original Amadeus PNR you got when you booked does not appear on the bag tag.

This internal reference appears on all BA bookings. I use myflights app and I usually get a change notification a few days before the flight when the booking syncs to the departure system and this internal reference appears
