But it is just possible that a supersonic business jet (SSBJ) could be developed to keep the ultra high-speed aviation flag flying.
"It will be very interesting to see what consideration is given to SSBJs now that Concorde is no longer flying across the Atlantic," said Kieran Daly, editor of the internet news service Air Transport Intelligence.
He went on: "One or two companies have been looking at the possibility of SSBJs. The problem is that an engine to power them does not exist at the moment."
Mr Daly continued: "I don't think you will see a `son of Concorde' inside 20 years, and maybe not for even longer."
