So someone high enough to expense a supersonic subfleet airfare but not so high they can charter their own flight. Sounds like a very small niche to chase.UA seems to feel that international "executive" travel is recovering faster than other segments of the market, including traditional "business" travel. Sending one important player to that pivotal meeting, rather than a mid-level team. That's the niche they're targeting, hoping to be ahead of the curve.
At first I was sad to hear it was being retired but the photos and videos I saw made the Concorde look surprisingly pedestrian relative to the cost. I think it would have been cool to ride once and have a story to tell but even if the cost was much lower I would have preferred more space and service for the money.My one trip on the Concorde( to Mexico) now reminds me of today's cramped,packed Planes.
There are overnight flights across the Pacific as well and in Business I can sleep through it and arrive in good spirits. Most airlines close the shades or engage the twilight filters on daytime flights so even then you can simply lay down and sleep through most of it. On waking up I barely remember the flight itself.Sort of like LD train travel, I have grown fond of the sweet spot overnight transatlantic flight.
