Concorde Departure Times On 10/24/03

Wed Oct 15, 2003 3:12 am

Like most of us in here, I am not looking forwarded to bidding farewell to the 'Queen of the Skies', but that date is rapidly approaching.

Can anyone tell me what time Concorde is supposed to depart JFK? One of my friends said the scheduled departure was at 7AM... this seems awfully early to me considering it is the last commercial flight of a true icon.

I am hoping to get to JFK to see Concorde leave but 7AM will be sort of tough!

None shall pass!!!!

As far as I know, Concorde hasn't left LHR at 9am for the past 6 months! There's usually one flight daily at 18:30, but I'm sure there will be more approaching and departing because of the Tour Of Britain.

No. About 1 year ago they changed departure times to 18:30. Flight attendants were complaining about LHR departure time as no time to shop in NYC as BA 2 departs at 09:00. Go to www.ba.com for further info.
