BA are launching special fares on Concorde this summer to attract leisure travellers onto it's supersonic flagship.
A special return fare to JFK for £3,999, including taxes, fees and charges for travel for May 22 to December 31 2002.
This special offer goes on sale Wenesday 15th May, and ends at midnight on 5th June.
Also, those who wish to travel one sector in Club World or World Traveller Plus can get a ticket starting at £2,837 and £2,337 respectively.
BA say 'we are keen to boost bookings for leisure travellers on Concorde and this offer will give more people the opportunity to take a supersonic flight, tickets are non-refundable and non-changeable and have advance purchase restrictions, so it's unlikely to appeal to our core Concorde customers who are primarily business travellers.'
For info check out http://www.ba.com/html

Looks a good offer, loads on Concorde are still on a upward curve, especially since the BA002 was re-timed for a 08:30 JFK departure.
There is traditionally a reduction in services during August, when the BA003/4 were operating.
These are planned to be re-instated next year, if market conditions look good.
However, with no charters planned for the foreseeable future, offers like this are the only game in town for cheap Concorde flights, so what are you all waiting for!

I am still waiting for the re-launching of non-rev specials to be able to afford a supersonic flight.

That should happen once the BA003 and BA004 services restart.
(Apparently BA are getting a lot of requests from US customers for the BA003 to return, they like a day's business in London, then on the BA003 at 19:00, back in JFK at 17:50).
Earliest is January, April more likely, but of course that could change if the demand is demonstrated.
Possibly starting out several times a week, or weekdays only.

GDB, any idea of what the BA Staff fare is these days? I seem to remember before the accident it was £400 per sector. Is this still the case?

I've heard £500 each way being mentioned, though I've yet to check it out.
I'm overdue a NY trip.
