British Airways will launch a legal bid later to try to stop a 12-day Christmas strike by cabin crew going ahead.
BA said the move was aimed at avoiding “‘massive stress and disruption'” for passengers threatened by the walkout from 22 December to 2 January.
The airline will claim in London’s High Court a strike ballot by the Unite union was invalid because it involved members no longer employed by BA.
At the centre of the dispute is BA’s decision to reduce cabin crew numbers and introduce a pay freeze.
