Concorde To Fly Off Into The Sunset
from the there-goes-that-plan... dept
The Concorde always had some mystique to it (even after the crash). However, that mystique just isn’t enough to pay the bills, apparently. British Airways and Air France announced today that they’ll be ending Concorde flights later this year. They say there aren’t enough passengers, and maintenance costs are rising. Apparently, the majority of passengers for the 3-hour trans-Atlantic flights were American, and Americans just aren’t flying any more. As you might imagine, the leftover Concordes will probably make their way into museums.
