Well many of my flights are long distance (e.g. JFK to China), so Concordes aren't as viable to me. I may buy one or two, but that's it.

To answer the Concorde Question, it isn't very viable. They are ever so slightly cheaper than an A340-300. These A340 have more range, and over 3 times the capacity. The planes are half as fast, so the Concorde can't make up the difference and isn't viable for most airlines.

Concordes are very viable.
