LAS VEGAS (October 11, 2004) - Flight Options, LLC, a leading provider of private travel solutions in business aircraft and an affiliate of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), announced today that the company continues to steadily gain market share in the jet card market since launching its JetPASS membership program in July 2004.
