    $\begingroup$ Bracking Action information not available? $\endgroup$ – DeltaLima Oct 25 '18 at 7:08

    $\begingroup$ That's what my guess is too. Another (educated) guess: Type: A321, Reg: TC-JRP, ADEP: LTCC, ADES: LTBA, ACID: THY3FN. Correct? :-) $\endgroup$ – DeltaLima Oct 25 '18 at 10:42

I think the BA/ references "Braking Action" in the ICAO D-ATIS sequence. Since the example report from LBTA (Istanbul Ataturk International Airport) does not suggest that a Braking Action value would be assigned (no rain, etc), it appears to be a placeholder for that information if it was provided.

Below is an excerpt from Annex 11, to the publication - Convention on International Civil Aviation (Air Traffic Services), showing the sequencing (where it would normally appear in the D-ATIS report) of a Braking Action report (if provided/available).
