In Snatch, John Cleese takes the Concorde NY-London and back (so presumably, on BA), and on his return gives Customs a great line:

"Anything to declare?"
"Yeah, don't go to England."

Just noticed there's a BA plane shown at the start of titles of the ITV comedy "Duty Free" with Keith Baron and Gwen Taylor et al

They certainly have. Can you imagine the outcry if they went back to Mumm Cordon Rouge?

That was Dennis Farina. And I loved the way they put together the Concorde sequences.

In Moonraker one of the ambulance henchmen is thrown from the ambulance and ends up in a BA advertising hoarding in GIG.

In Stormbreaker G-NVSB arrives at a purported Cornish airport carrying some of the cast. (I wasn't watching the cast very closely)

Feature films that feature BA ?

Just out of curiosity a little question to the collective triviality that is the BA EC board. Was BA ever featured in any motion picture and if yes, which? It is always funny to see the made up airlines in films, especially if they crash, but I am sure that real airlines are used as well. Maybe even a bit of product placement.

I know of none, but I am sure you do.
