ANALYSIS: The mixed fortunes of all-business class services
17 May 2016
At the start of the 21st century, the only all-business class service was Concorde. Now after a short-lived flurry of all-premium transatlantic start-ups in the mid-2000s a second wave is having mixed success. Those who appear to be making the model work albeit in a modest way are British Airways, with its Airbus A318 service from London City to New York, and a French boutique airline , La Compagnie, which serves the US city from London and Paris with a pair of Boeing 757-200s.
