31st March 1991, was the last flight.

The service had been suffering lower load factors due to the increased popularity on the JFK flights. The general aviation downturn at this time due to the Gulf War was the final nail in the Coffin.

Post 1991 the additional capacity allowed further charter operations to be performed than before.

I thought that 31st March was the last Concorde flight to MIA. Didn't IAD last a little longer?

No, Concorde didnt fly to IAD in 1999. They stop flying to IAD before 1996.

Yea, I remember seeing speedbird 198 or 189 from IAD-LHR as an SST in my flight guide in 1999 or 1998. Dunno what happened to it.
