British Airways, the largest carrier between Europe and the U.S., says it will launch business-class-only service between JFK International Airport and London City Airport. Two specially configured aircraft, the largest able to take off and land at the London airport, will be used for the flights, and round-trip tickets will cost about $3,000. Passengers will be allowed to use mobile phones and laptops to surf the Internet and send and receive text messages and e-mails.
