AB moving to T7 at JFK?

I just received notification that my AB flight in October is departing from JFK T7, instead of T8.

Has that move been reported here previously?

T7 is BA's drab, un-renovated home at JFK, and is probably charging less rent than T8 --- ever since CX transferred the other way. For the past couple of decades, BA has every few years announced a major renovation of the terminal, but somehow has never actually gotten around to it....and it shows. Think TXL, but with even less ongoing maintenance.....

As Plat, the move from the renovated AA Flagship Lounge to BA Galleries First is just horrible...

This would really suck for OWS/OWE/J passengers.

Latest renovation plans announced just a few months ago:
