Has anyone heard of these before?
I saw it once on the Travel Channel. People take the concorde all over the world, it showed them in Dehli, and Sydney I believe. It is very high luxury, with chef cooked meals on the Concorde and everything.
How often do these occurr?
How much *gasp* does the vacation cost?

Concorde G-BOAD did the last 'round the world' in late 1999, they happened about once every two years.
Nightmare for support and logistics, no Concorde spares or experience outside of LHR, CDG, JFK and BGI.
BA Concorde engineers had to be positioned in advance at various points, as far away as Australia, and a spares pack in the Concorde's baggage hold behind the rear galley.
No plans at least at BA to do these again right now, maybe after 2003.
