BA Heathrow/Belfast Callsigns

Just noticed a BHD>LHR BA flight using the a Shuttle 5 callsign, its northbound leg was Shuttle 4.

Those were used aeons ago when the Shuttle used Aldergrove but that was abandoned. When BA started serving BHD they used numeric callsigns rather than retaining consistency with Manchester's Shuttle 2/3 and the 6/7 and 8/9 for the Anglo Scottish flights.

When did use of 5/5 for Belfast resume?
