In 1970 the airline industry reached it’s highest point in it’s history,at that time they had just come out with the Airbus A-300. Meanwhile an England based company designed the Concord jet. They were both equal in appeal,being that the Airbus could hold thousands of passengers,while the Concord jet could hold under 500. However,the Concord traveled fast,faster thanthe earth rotates in fact,breaking the sound barrier.
By the end of the 1970’s decade people found it cheaper to fly the Airbus than to fly the Concord jet which had it’s price topped out at 10,000 i believe( Feel free to comment a correction.)But after a certain time Airbus was cheaper and thriving,while Concord jets lost it’s money to pay for the expensive things and filed for bankruptcy.
The Airbus A-300 has hundreds or thousands in the business.The creation and use of concord jets has long ago ceased in the airline industry.
