Concorde is at most going to make it until 2007. According to an article this
year sometime (I tried to find it but couldn't) the latest efforts last year
to extend the life of Concorde was succesful but the planes will have to be
pulled before 2010 due to extreme metal fatigue. Concorde was originally
scheduled to make its last flight in 1995 (when built) because at the time it
was thought the planes would be too old.

Obviously if you want to fly an SST flight Concorde may be your last and only
chance.
