    As an aviation geek, one of my biggest regrets is not having flown the Concorde. I suppose it's not really a regret, since 12 years ago I wasn't in a position to get myself a seat on the Concorde. If only I had gotten started in this hobby a few years earlier! It does sort of amaze me that the Concorde started service nearly 50 years ago, yet in the meantime we haven't been able to build another plane which can reach supersonic speeds. For that matter, I'm not sure I'd see as much value in the Concorde nowadays as in the past, given that flat beds and wifi are quickly becoming the norm in premium cabins on international flights. The opportunity cost of a redeye between New York and London decreases significantly when you can get "real" sleep the whole way, and in the other direction wifi at least helps people stay connected to the world.
