Hello all, it has been awhile. I was wondering if anyone can tell me at what time the Concorde arrives and departs JFK? I would like to plan a trip to photograph it before I no longer have the chance. If anyone knows or would like to hang out and show me around JFK, I would appreciate the assistance.

According to flytecomm,BA comes in around 5:22pm & Air France comes in around 8:16 am. Not sure on departure times,but I remember listening to JFK tower on the internet and hearing "Speedbird Concorde One Heavy " leaving around 8:30 am .

how long will BA's concordes be operating into JFK? I had heard october of this year, is this still correct? it's possible i could make a trip up to JFK this fall to see the concorde once more, but i'd like to make sure that the concorde will still be there...

Yes BA Concordes are supposed to operate until October. AF's Concorde will operate until May 30 I believe

BA Concorde leaves around 9am
AF Concorde arrives ~8:15am leaves 8am

Remember that Concorde does NOT operate on Saturday!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Good luck...and may be I'll see you this weekend

Actually, the AF doesn't operate on Saturday but BA does, 9am departure. At least according to current Sabre skeds. And according to Sabre, last day for AF is 31MAY03.

So Mike...you mean AF WILL operate on May 31!? Even their "regular" schedule shows no flight on Sunday?

According to Sabre (and I know that is not always 100%) it does show the AM JFK-CDG Air France Concorde flight operating on May 31, which is a Saturday. The next day, Sunday June 1 and following days after no longer show the Concorde on the skeds for AF.

Jeremy,
I plan on going to JFK either Friday or Saturday this week with a friend of mine to see the Concordes. Anyone else going to New York before Air France stops service? I don't want to miss that plane. I've only seen the Concorde in flight once when it went over my house at 18,000 feet years ago heading to IAD.

And it looks like the 31st of May is the official end of the Air France Concorde. It lands at JFK for the last time on the 30th at 0825 and departs the 31st at 0800 (from www.airfrance.com).

Right now I'm planning on being there both Friday morning and Saturday morning. However, I'm flying in the night before from Springfield, IL and arriving very late. Hopefully that won't interfere.

You won't have much time for hanging around and being shown JFK. The AF departure is sched for 8:00 a.m. and the arrival about 8:25. They're within minutes of each other by the time the departure taxis out to the active. The only thing we can hope for is that they are using the 04's because that allows you to get both the inbound and outbound flights (unless they let her depart on 31L as they have done in the past). You've got to be in place pretty early or you won't catch her.
