You're asking would I fly NYC-MXP-MIA in EK F if they had a routing like that or if I'd fly NYC-MIA nonstop in domestic F?
If I was still a bochur I'd choose the former. But most sane people will choose the latter.
Iím asking, if this is introduced today on Nyc -dxb which one would you pick ?

Iím not an economist, but this is how I see it:
Even if, all in all the price of flying a square foot is the same in these planes, including time gained on aircraft and crew maintenance gas etc.
1.You would still be dealing with a plane smaller than a 737.
2.most y pax are equating comfort=$ and that includes saving time,how much of a premium would they be willing to pay to get ny-Lon in 2 hours ? (I donít think more than 25%)
3. How much premium pax would be willing to pay for a j seat which would mean significant space used or a domestic f seat
While these are arguable, the only way I think this can work, is if itís cheaper than the current price of flying a square foot, which I donít think is happening anytime soon.
Feel free to argue

That's insane.
Ok how about an ek f for 12 hours vs. a domestic j seat for 3 ? And how much of a premium would airlines be able to charge for those?

I personally would rather sit in a j seat for 8 hours than a y for 2, but that could just be me...


What would you rather ?
AND that is assuming that they are both the same price which I donít think will happen so fast....

Why would this be less successful than euro J? It would be a shorter flight.

The Concorde used ancient technology and was never updated due to lack of competition. It was the last airplane to still employ a flight engineer.
Additionally the design was inherently flawed, which led to the AF4590 disaster.
The sonic booms were too loud due to old tech.
The post 9/11 slowdown was the nail in the coffin.
Finally, Mach2 just wasn't fast enough to move the needle. Mach5 is a very different story.
I think that airlines pretty much figured out the economics of air travel, look at the failures of the new 747 and A380s
For this to be successful they need to be able to fly a seat trans Atlantic at a similar price point than a 787 for example and I donít think thatís happening anytime soon.
Imo a business only product will be a huge failure and with such a small cabin space is going to be scarce so I canít imagine seats/personal space being the same than current business/first class products and I personally would rather sit in a j seat for 8 hours than a y for 2, but that could just be me...
But Hey itís not slated until 2030 a lot of things can change till then

If it cuts flight time to 2 hours, and seats are comfortable (you bet they will be for a premium business product like this) who cares about the size (other than caring that the economics work to make it sustainable).
Cmon we all love flying longer to stay on that comfortable seat
And while I havenít flown the concord the seats look on picture like coach seats

To clarify I didnít mean to say that these are the new terms, just a possibility that chase wants to change the card which obviously would be terrible
