Really misleading, it is good to note that British Airways was created on 31 March 1974.

I remember that because of a row with its Flight Engineers, the first aircraft delivered to BOAC were grounded at LHR, the engines being removed.

Simply the first engines, PW JT9D-3A had a few problems, mainly engine stalls, and there was a high demand for spare engines to keep aircraft of other airlines flying.
