Singapore Airlines did operate half a Concorde as a code-share with British Airways in the late 1970s. The Concorde carried SIA's livery on one side and BA on the other.

The route flown was LHR-BAH-SIN but was still slower than today's non-stop service because of the refuelling time at Bahrain and flight restrictions. The service was stopped after only a few flights as the fare was proposterous and Malaysia imposed a ban on Supersonic flight from its airspace in fear of Cold War spy aircraft ... hence pretty much restricting Concorde out of Singapore.

Do you think that we might see a Delta Airlines Concorde soon then (Delta-Air France code sharing).

Can any one of you people with knowledge of graphic programs make a Concorde in Delta's livery?


I seriously think I just creamed my pants without any influence from any outside variables.

the only way that delta would code share the concord is if american did the same with british airways. How cool would an all silver concord be?
