Its bullshit.
BEA merged with BOAC in 1971 to form British Airways.
However, British Airways has no current plans to operate the Tempest due to its low passenger capacity, poor legroom and lack of toilets.

Re: Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers - News and Discussion

I hope Babcock/ACA/RN release some QE on the blocks photos, It'd be interesting to see how much marine growth there is (or isn't!) on her hull after nearly 5 years in salt water.

QE's AIS is off, but you can make out her position from the tugs around her.
