Sorry to disappoint, but the low-fare story is wrong.
I've not got the figures to hand, but Concorde's fares on scheduled services are, and have always been, the First Class fare, plus 20%

BBC reports £6800 something. About £600 above normal. However, BA says that their customers aren't cost-conscious anyway. Hmm. But are there any who want to fly during this period of economic crisis? That is the larger question. To fly, or not to fly?
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

Have you been to the BA website? The pop-up Concorde section has a facts and figures part; amongst them is their most frequent flyer is an oil company executive who averages 70 trips per year.

An oil company with money to burn literally  Wink/being sarcastic

David/MAN: 283 days and counting to BA 747s on the LHR-MAN route

Previously, Concorde has been recession-proof, even allowing for the current situation, Concorde's regular customers have indicated that they want to fly on it.
Remember, the very regular pax. gain up to 2 working days per week by using it.
It's business pax, not celebs, who make up most of the clientale.
