It's not TOL-LHR. They fly you to JFK, then you go from there on the concorde. We had the "Orlando Concorde" and "Tampa Concorde" 2 years ago. They flew you to JFK.

Rolex......are ya jealous?? Sounds like someone I used to know ...... =o)~

Dazed....I heard that the only way it would come into TOL is if it had filled all of the seats. I know they are coming back from JFK, and as of like 2 and a half months ago....68 seats were sold. I'll try and get some more clearer info.

So is the Concorde going to fly TOL-JFK-LHR or is it something else on the TOL-JFK route, then join up with a regular Concorde flight?

I went to the web page, and it's implies TOL-LHR (probally not possible)...

Would be nice to see the Concorde depart out of TOL.

(living near Ann Arbor, MI it's only about a 45 minute drive)

Rolex calm down! flyinryan was making a joke and by getting all defensive you suggest that you are jealous.... listing all of your airports, has a concorde been to any of them? I dont think so, but maybe one has.

I don't understand why people thing it would be impossible to see the Concorde in Toledo. The travel agency sponsoring the trip not only has Toledo population, but Ft. Wayne, Detroit/Ann Arbor/Flint, Cleveland, and Columbus from which to get passengers. Also in terms of the facilities, Toledo Express Airport is more than well equipped to handle an aircraft such as the Concorde.
As for whether the flight makes a stop in JFK, I'm not sure. The website says "direct" which means a stop but no change in planes. However, people get "direct" and "nonstop" confused all the time, so a clear cut intinerary needs to be provided by the travel agency. The last time the Concorde came to Columbus in the mid-90's, the aircraft came in from JFK, did a champaign flight to Washington, then left for London the next morning. I was under the impression that it was nonstop to London, but now I'm not sure.

I could be wrong too. But when we had the ad down here in FLA a friend of mine called and they said there was a stop in NY.

Last time I heard about this on the radio, there was a group of Toledo resident who have file complaints against the concorde landing/taking-off at Toledo. They live under the flight path. The complains were taken up with the airport authority, BA, the tour operator and FAA...

Some people just have too much free time on their hands...  Sad I'd be glad to have the concorde fly over my house everyday, even at Mach 2!  Big grin

I am calm, just want to know why he says Im jealous. I have seen the Concorde before.. Great site. But I would like to have airports that have traffic, in NICE places at least, rather than seeing the Concorde just once.

I very strongly suspect that JFK will be the departure point, I'll ask around at work about it.

The Concorde will be in TOL!!! They used to have this same trip from CLE every summer (CLE-JFK-LHR) The last one was cancelled after the crash, it was scheduled the following week that summer. The Concorde will fly TOL-JFK-LHR. The TOL-JFK leg will be flown subsonic just like every other commerical flight over the the continental US.

Ok, so maybe some people need to get their facts straight on the difference between nonstop and direct.

According to that page, it says nonstop...fly from TOL-LHR. So it's nonstop. Otherwise they'll mention if it will stop at JFK. Besides, BA has several other SST instead of BA1/2, usually for charters.

BA Concorde's are not, and won't be for the forseeable future, in the charter business.
I looked at the BA002 for 14th April, the date of this 'charter'.
Only 34 seats left unsold, very odd for a BA002 6 weeks in advance.
Guess what? Most of the pax on this flight are couples, very unlike a Concorde BA002, or BA001 for that matter.
So they are from this Toledo charter. Like all BA002's, it will depart from JFK.
Good news for Concorde, BA and the industry in general, that high-yield non-business seats are being filled like this.
If this starts a trend, you may see extra Concorde JFK flights.
But they will be JFK, so don't expect any flights to unusual airports.
