At a guess : in AWS-speak The airlines (players) bought the aircraft : the AI broker acquired it when the first purchaser bankrupted. Its pretty much the same thing, but a slight difference in emphasis.  BK-ed players aircraft just get allocated to an AI broker so they can go back onto the market.

Yep. Acquired is just used for brokers. Because they didn't buy it from the previous owner, they acquired it when that owner BKed.
