In the 80s/early 90s a SST of bizjet size was proposed, by Gulfstream/Sukhoi. Whatever happened to this? A typical modern jumbo has a dozen first class seats in its 300-odd total, so a dozen-seater SST seems to me to be a realistic size, and it would be lower-risk technology wise than a big SST. Could be quieter on takeoff too.
