I just changed my reservation to BA002 on 10/4. That way, I can fly into NYC the night before, see Springsteen at Shea stadium and fly the Concorde (Seat 24A) the next day.

I see no availability on Galileo. Was this through BA or QF? You made the reservations inline??

Those same dates JFK-LHR are still available btw... as of 2:46PM PST.

This is via britishairways.com once you login you can check through the Award Availability finder thing.

There were no LHR-JFK flights available.

jspear, so now we expect a Trip Report. Having done it 12 months ago (LHR/JFK), it is a life changing experience. Particularly now for you, being in the last month....make sure you score anything and everything that you can take off the flight (or BA Concorde Room)

Let's not have any more of this tacky plundering.

Just enjoy the ride and be happy you got a chance to go supersonic before Concorde retires.

Just in case somebody would be willing to take me along trading BA miles for KLM miles or Swiss miles ... PLEASE let me know.

Sorry, LondonElite, I should have been more specific with my choice of words.

I meant to say whatever is normally available for paxs to take (Concorde in flight magazines, etc). That is what I took when I flew The Bird last year...anything that the Concorde Lounge staff and Concorde Crew allowed me to take (because I checked with them first).

Really? REALLY?

Well, it's fun and it's a thrill, but not quite life changing!

wise words LondonElite, after our friend (for want of a better word) aircfo who pinched everything except the plane itself people should be grateful to get onboard at all.
