FrontRunners: Fresh Air

In September, British Airways (www.britishairways.com) will begin twice-daily business-class-only flights from New York’s JFK International Airport to London City Airport, located just outside the city’s financial district. Each flight will accommodate only 32 passengers, who will be able to lie flat in their seats, send and receive text messages and e-mails, and go online while in the air. The new service will also offer 15-minute check-ins in London.
