I know that BA operates 7 Concorde aircraft; I had the opportunity to 
fly it twice before they pulled it from Dulles (our company worked out a 
Business Class upgrade deal).  The only route they fly to the U.S. now 
is JFK-LHR daily, plus some selected flights to Bermuda and various 
charter flights.  There was a very interesting article in the British 
Airlines magazine "BA Engineering" (or something like that) in October; 
talked about refurbishment that will add several years to the life of 
the aircraft.
