I think BA seem to be getting this consistently wrong. Comparing with AA, who's staff will go out and proactively ask people if they will gate check their bags, and if they agree, the staff do it on the spot, often carrying the bag for the customer. There is no chance that the PAX will get earlier boarding as a result. This is a sensible way of doing it, I'd say, the passenger gets a treat by getting their bag checked for free, what's more to want?
BA are crazy to reward HBO passengers not only by giving them a free bag check, but ALSO crazily letting them board first - the whole point of HBO is to make it hard and unattractive !
