BA have made a lot of promises of when Concorde will be back in service, but it isn't yet, so I don't see any reason to believe that it will be back in October, even though I hope so.

I think October's a reasonable timeframe to expect 'em back in service. Especially since they seemed to be really pushing the past couple months, to announce and demo to everybody that hey, they're coming back again soon.

I just checked the BA website and according to the information published there, they will start service on Aug. 25 (BA 0001 and BA0003) which is next Saturday.
But maybe they didn't update there computers recently...
