Re: Concorde Why no 1st class?

Think of it in terms of ticket price. You would've been paying the same amount to fly on Concorde as you would be flying first class in a 747 (or thereabouts). The seats might not be quite first class standard, but you are receiving a first class service on board and other additional things that mak...

Re: Regional Jet Operators Maintenance

It depends on the agreement and/or setup that the airline(s) have arranged... For example: I work for a major regional airline in the UK...
