Fly FASTER?? Excuse me, but if you compare the Concorde with the 747,
the trip will go much faster with the Concorde. The problem? No
in-flight movie on the Concorde, but no crappy airline food. Some good
stuff on there. Personally, I have not been on a Concorde but would love
to. For $9,000 a ticket, I am not sure.
