Concorde grounded for good

Concorde grounded for good
Concorde flights are to end after more than three decades of luxury travel.
British Airways and Air France made simultaneous announcements that they would be permanently grounding the famous supersonic airliners this year.
Sad to see it go, but I suppose in these modern times there isn't room for the kind of extravagance offered by the Concorde.

It's a real shame to see this plane go out of service, but it's really about time. The safety and profit from these flights left a lot to be desired.

It's sometimes good to see capitalism win a battle with a poor business strategy, even if the more tangible results seem attractive. It's like the dot coms all over again.
