Concept Plane Could Travel From New York To London In Eleven Minutes

Completely impractical… 1 hour drive to the airport, an hour to park, 3 hours for check in, security and boarding (at least!!!) then half an hour to taxi, half an hour to get out of the airport’s airspace, no supersonic over land, so another hour, then 7 minutes across the Atlantic, then slow down for land, hold for landing slot… etc. etc. etc.

And, if you have a connecting flight, immigration, baggage collection, customs, etc. too.

It could save may be 6 hours at best in the real world. If it was cheap enough to run.
