BOEING PREDICTS that the introduction of a future supersonic transport (SST) could cause "turmoil" in the airliner market, by increasing passenger-market segmentation. Borge Boeskov, president of Boeing Business Jets, said in London that a 300-seat SST would attract first, business and full-economy-fare pas sengers who account for two-thirds of revenue on a conventional service. "If you siphon off the full fares with the SST, we can see turmoil in the rest of the market," he says.
