Nope, that was a US painted in BA colours with their own crew.

He is talking about BA’s own 763s. BA has served CLT with BA painted USAir 762s, BA’s 777s, and BA’s 763s. IIRC the 763s were only used for a year or two before the route was cut.
BA started service with their own metal and crew in 1996, initially with a 763. The flight was up-gauged to a 772 in 1998, first seasonally and then year-round.
In October 2001, they canceled the CLT-LGW nonstop and added a CLT-BWI tag onto BWI-LHR, using a 763. They cut CLT completely in October 2002.
BA also had a small, but nice Terraces Lounge in Charlotte.
