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

Realistically I think this is way too far off to try and figure out the economics of it. Who knows what the world will even look like by the time this becomes possible. In fact, I think we're more likely to have something space rocket based (if Bezos and/or Musk aren't already planning this I want a cut :P ) long before this.

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
It is much deeper. Revenue business class pax have one thing in mind and that is to be able to reach their destination without feeling like a chewed up sardine so that they can do what they need to effectively. cutting the travel time down to 2 hours does much more for that than a better seat.

"A man in his underwear ran onto the tarmac at Atlanta's airport, jumped onto the wing of a Delta plane, and pounded on the windows while screaming at passengers inside."

There's basically no detail about the existing and/or proposed regulations they take issue with in the article. And if you paid $900 for a dishwasher and it doesn't clean in one cycle, you got ripped off - nothing to do with regulations.

Did you follow through the links? It is a commentary article so for the underlying reporting you will need to do that.

The current lineup of dishwashers take much longer than the old ones and a normal cycle will not get as much as the old normal cycles when you are dealing with pots and pans.

my dishwasher was around 850 and it stinks
there are certain times that need a second cycle like cholent pot or the top rack sometimes
