can the Concorde be profitable If I schedule it on two or three transatlantic flights a day?

I'm basically wondering if the new back-end parameters and calculations would give it an advantage due to speed and comfort, especially if i outfit it with all First/Business class seats.

Can be profitable, but it's not a sure-fire-success.

The only concordes available are bloody expensive to run, and the turnaround for 100 pax just isn't worth it. Maybe Business/FC config might work though is there enough demand?

I certainly hope you can make it work.  Given how long it takes to develop first class pax. load, it may take awhile.  Good luck!

I personally really want a Concorde fleet but I feel I need a standard fleet to make the venture worthwhile

It can be profitable, but it needs to run full, and have a high percentage of F/C seats, and either charge a price markup or use HD seating (or both).

The speed bonus helps your ticket sales and pricing.

However, it can't make 2x transatlantics per day. Only about 1.5. So for best efficiency you would need at least 7 Concorde to make a 7-day schedule.
