British Airways pilots’ planned strike may cost the airline as much as $50 million a day, the airline said in a lawsuit as it seeks to halt the walkout.

Pilots at the airline backed industrial action -- including what would be their first strike in about four decades -- with a 93% majority, the British Airline Pilots Association said Monday.
