Non-Revving On Concorde

Wed Jan 16, 2002 9:17 am

Is it allowed or possible?

So if I had an ID that allowed me to Non-Rev on regular BA of AF flights, could I non-rev on Concorde if there was room?

No, I don't think so, but they can get discounted tickets.

Delta employees can non-rev on Air France planes but NOT on the concorde, not even reduced tickets.

Hello,

No you cannot purchase normal ID tickets. However, BA did have a special agreement with a certain number of airlines including SR. Prices were around 500 British pounds per flight coupon (one way, not including Switzerland-LHR) IIRC, they could only we used on the Westbound flights and not Eastbound (why remains a mystery)

AFAIK, not even AF/BA employees have normal Concorde ID tickets.

All that said, I seem to recall that AF and/or BA have in the past offered nov-revs reduced rate seats on a handful of position ferry flights. The price was something like $300-$500... This was 10-15 years ago, and I don't know if they're still doing it or not. If they are, I'll sign up... (the only way *I'll* ever see Mach 2.0)  Big grin

When I worked for Alaska Airlines, there were deal for AS employees on BA Concorde flights, they were $700 r/t and were offered in the spring. It was not a regular IDXX ticket, it was like a pass that had a fee of $700. I remember there were flyers that were posted with the dates that the fare was good and you had to advance purchase it 14 days ahead. I would guess that with the very limited number of Concorde flights right now, there wont be any deals anytime soon.
