No thanks. I think I’m patient enough to take the normal flight from JFK to Heathrow. I’m not gonna throw in an extra 4K just for a slightly shorter flight. And what about the sonic booms? That’s half the reason the concord wasn’t profitable because nobody would let those planes into their airspace because of the noise

More perks for the rich.

these planes are designed to reduce the boom dramatically so they can fly over land, airtravel is far larger now than in the 70s 80s
