BAA plc (formerly British Airports Authority) is an airport operator - LHR, LGW, STN and several others.

It is not an airline using two of the three initials.

Meaning what, Roger? The reason I posted this here was because I would imagine the BA presence at the three aformentioned airports is quite large, and therefore anything that happens to BAA has an affect on BA. Or was that an attempt at sarcastic British humour that I missed?

The meaning is clear - factual and without comment or opinion.

If there is anything inaccurate in my post, I'm sure you will let everybody know.

I guess the answer is "no, it doesn't make you a better person".

What BBC doesn't highlight is that it also means that BAA can be broken up as well as taken over.
