Link?

Last I saw here - https://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2017/05/12/singapore-airlines-a350-900ulr-configuration/ - there was this line:

"Singapore is also rumored to be introducing a new business class product for the A350-900ULRs, so Iíll be curious to see what they come up with."

Though did not see any follow up on it in a later post.

For other reasons as Dan wrote.

ďPart of the reason the airlines could claim some profitability on the Concorde was because they did not have to incur capital costs on the planes.Ē
As I said the only way this could be judged if would be profitable is to know the operating costs,which we donít yet.
In any case I think it will be many more years before regular travelers fly supersonic

For concorde people paid $10,000+ why is this different?
is the concord still around
It wouldn't be replacing the existing J/F market, it's about creating something for a certain limited niche.
This market has to be big enough for airlines to supplement current j/f service with super speed service and I donít think it is. besides the fact I think that such an operation would be a mammoth undertaking in terms of maintenance which would hike the prices even more making this a very very niche market

I think you might be missing the point of the target audience for this. This is targeted towards a very specific segment that sees tremendous value in being able to be in NY (or DC, or possibly other locations) and in LON (or PAR, FRA, ZRH, GVA, etc.) on the same day.
And my point is that, that market is not big enough to overweight the :business people who are not in a mad rush and would rather enjoy a comfortable seat AND y pax
So that leaves a pretty small market and I donít think airlines are going to change operations for such a market
