The answer is complicated — Vox's Phil Edwards investigated.
Sadly, I have to agree...Dariussssss wrote:The real is reason is simply the age of the aircraft. 30+ years old,with a huge fuel burn. Very,very delicate and fragile. Just not suitable for today air travel,when the plane is working really hard to bring money to the airline. I'm a huge Concorde fan,but,what happen in Paris was just waiting.
Ironically, I'm actually doing an around-the-world trip right now in the Concorde. Not sure how many legs this'll take or where it'll take Me, but we shall see
I'll submit My Flight Plans in a new thread once done
