Virgin to Launch Business Class Airline

Bad news for Eos, Silverjet and MAXjet (though mostly for Eos and Silverjet):  Richard Branson has announced that Virgin will launch all-business class flights between New York and a bunch of European cities within the next 18 months.  They plan on purchasing about 15 planes to dedicate to this service, which will initially serve Paris, Amsterdam,
Frankfurt, Milan and Zurich, and London from New York.  This is a huge blow for the upstart carriers trying to make all-business class service work from New York to London.
