British Airways on Thursday won a High Court injunction blocking a threatened 12-day strike by cabin crews that could have grounded about 1 million travelers at the height of the Christmas season. The decision ended a roller-coaster four days of disputes and negotiations over the planned work stoppage, which threatened to further undercut the beleaguered airline at one of the busiest travel times of the year. The union called the strike in response to British Airways' decision to reduce cabin crew staffing on most flights to cut costs.
