Will it become a reality? I doubt it will happen by the current projected date but anything is possible.......

Under the terms of the agreement, United will purchase 15 of Boom's 'Overture' airliners, once Overture meets United's demanding safety, operating and sustainability requirements, with an option for an additional 35 aircraft.

It is slated to roll out in 2025, fly in 2026 and expected to carry passengers by 2029. United and Boom will also work together to accelerate production of greater supplies of SAF.

Willing to be non-rev travel will be restricted and OAL will be embargoed.

I give it a 50/50 chance of resulting in actual deliveries

Yeah, Aerion had orders too, and Airbus involved ( {rotfl} ), and look how that turned out:

That's a shame about Aerion. I had hopes for that one. Hope that one day someone with deep pockets can revive the project and bring it to fruition. The artist rendering of the United SST just re-enforces the need to redo the UNITED on the side.

There is one significant difference: Boom have already rolled out their scale-unit prototype. I don't recall Aerion getting that far. And when I do some digging on who Boom's internal movers and shakers are, I have more optimism that Overture might actually make it to delivery (albeit not on the current planned delivery timeline).

Since the trip time would be under 4 hours one way, does it become a turn vs. a layover? That would cause some heartburn among the crew who enjoy the time off overseas.

There was also talk of the express partners saying that since it seats only 68...scope clause kicks in and the E170 crews would get to fly it.

BA Concorde was crewed by short-haul staff, funnily enough.
