In the context of BA I’d say that tactic works OK at the outstations..However a health warning - it has on (rare) occasions been known to backfire with unfortunate results for some at LHR when the inbound service has been so disrupted that Ops have magically switched aircraft between services and/or also by magic managed to produce a standby crew...
