Try one more call to BA and then do a three-way call with BA and CX in which you essentially say, "I am just the passenger, what should I do here?"
After calls to seven BA agents, one supervisor and three CX staff over the course of a morning, I managed finally to convince BA that the ticket needed to be revalidated. Despite the supervisor's continued protestations that everything was fine (and CX's to the contrary), revalidation worked instantly and I was able to check in.

I shouldn't be surprised, but the quality of BA call centre staff leaves me deeply underwhelmed.
