It’s an interesting perspective; in the 70s and early 80s BA was a State-owned carrier, often providing the only service available to far flung part of the world.

It was respected, but it was hugely inefficient.

BA was the first of the legacy carriers to be privatised and despite some hiccups along the way, it has I believe, maintained a position which is to be respected.

Particularly with its introduction of the first fully flat convertible bed in F (Aer Lingus and Philippines had proper beds on their upper decks prior to this)and the Club World bed, which was market leading for a decade and still packs a punch.
