British Airways (BA) ditched its business jet charter service just six months after launching it with charter broker Air Partner, the result of cost-cutting after September 11. Meanwhile, Virgin Atlantic said it is reconsidering its plans to operate business aircraft through a program dubbed Virgin Jetset. A Virgin spokesman said it will reconsider the market for the service “in the new year.” Virgin has been involved in talks with Bombardier with a view to acquiring a fleet of Global Express long-range jets.
