Reply To: What should BA do with the Heathrow Concorde?

Back to Forum


AOTG, yes, although exorbitantly expenive even for a business passenger, Concorde was an experience. The takeoff like a rocket, then in mid-takeoff the (regular)shutdown of the boosters gave the feeling the eninges failed….the view from the little windows on the curvature of the earth….and then the service:
top champagne, excellent wines, caviar, foie gras, a small hot meal….and then the thunderbird sails into JFK….an amazing experience…and worth every penny.
And the same with the 8am retunr flight offering a caviar breakfast, top service and flying with the demise of daylight.
Will never experience that in my lifetime again!
