Apparently, BSCT is an acronym for ... baby bassinet. Somehow.

Various airlines use it, for instance:

The text only mentions the acronym like

baby bassinet (BSCT)

without giving any hint on what the letters actually stand for.

What does BSCT mean exactly?

    It is not an acronym, simply an abbreviation, but it is better to think of it simply as a code, and codes do not necessarily correspond to what they represent— thus a business class fare might be designated J, and Allegiant's IATA code is G4.

Amadeus defines it as "Bassinet/Carry cot/Baby basket," so I suppose its origin is "bassinet/cot."
