Latest update : 2010-05-17

British Airways succeeded Monday in a legal bid to stop a five-day strike due to start within hours after the High Court in London granted an injunction.

REUTERS - British Airways on Monday won a court injunction to stop cabin crew from going on strike.

BA had launched the challenge at London's High Court, arguing there had been an irregularity in the ballot of airline staff by the Unite Union.

Cabin crew were due to start a five-day walkout from 2300 GMT on Monday although last minute talks to resolve the dispute are still continuing.
