Virgin Atlantic is making plans to launch a business class only airline similar to Silverjet, MaxJet and Eos. The new airline should launch within the next year and a half. The flights would originate from London (Heathrow) to such cities as Paris, Frankfurt, Milan and eventually New York. British Airways is also rumored to be researching launching their own business-class only service. No news yet as to how this might have an effect on the frequent flyer programs of these airlines.
