I am seeing the practice done on an increasing scale at airports not only in Europe, but in the U.S., and world-wide as well....
Welcome to Aviation in the 21st Century, where it's not the routes you fly, but the company you keep that ultimately determines success.
I also imagine, one day, we'll be seeing airlines that don't actually do anything, other than place their code everywhere.....like a "virtual" airline.
It is very misleading, as sometimes arrival displays only show the code-share partner, and not the actual operator.
Now more than ever, travelers need to pay attention.

Yes, it's the BA service. - a remote possibility as to why is that it might be something to do with the lack of IOM service from LHR, so now you can route from JFK/ORD/(BOS-MIA*)-MAN-IOM in relative comfort.
* dependent on season
You'd be amazed at the teletext arrivals for GLA (and EDI)....the "ordinary" BD LHR service carries upwards of 7 codeshares, rendering almsot half the page with just the 1 flight arrival!
