      Another bad blow for Concorde. And for Richard Branson too come to think of it.

        The sooner the type is withdrawn from service the better. It was a magnificent aircraft in its day, but its day has now passed and it is time for its C of A to be withdrawn, so when it has had its final BA flight no other operator can fly it.

            BOAA and BOAB were withdrawn a while back I think? I dont think BA will bother to do anything about putting BOAC back in the skys befroe the concordes time is up.

              How very convenient for BA! Am I being a bit too cynical? Moi?

                The Barbados flights have now stopped, and with only 2 flights a day now, 4 aircraft is still too much. I could never understand why they needed 5 aircraft back into service anyway.

                  OK well she has been fixed now. It was just a a standard fuel tank problem, of which BA has about 5 of each month all across the fleet.

                      Looked to me like an attempt to nip in the bud all the PR Branson is milking without a cat in hells chance of succeeding.

                          probably trying to take it away from Virgin.
