It just seems like a bad time for any firm with the word "British" in its title. We know all too well the various setbacks experienced by the oil giant once known as British Petroleum; now British Airways has drawn much unwelcome attention to itself with a photo touting its new mobile-boarding pass system as it appears to expedite the air travel of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, the world's most wanted man.

Looks like a LHR T5 gate number. Probably a prank by a disgruntled staffer (as the article points out, BA have a labour dispute on their hands at the moment).

It's a photoshop, the NW prefix indicates that it's from an old story about Northwest Airlines
