Re: Electric Cars at the American International Auto Show



The Concorde was never made to be a thrifty plane. At one time, I was told, the flights were profitable because there were plenty of high end customers willing to pay the cost. Whether the project was profitable over the life is questionable.
So many airlines run with losses every year and whether they use Boeing or Airbus seems to make little difference.

Nope, the Concord lost a big bundle for the two Governments supporting it. Income barely covered the operational costs, development costs were eaten by the taxpayers.

That's another question, but with improved load factors and more efficient planes things are better. The shareholders and lenders lose when a private airline loses.
