The Concorde was an amazing feat of engineering. It allowed passengers to fly in extreme luxury, and very quickly. The main reason its production and use was discontinued is that it doesn't fit into modern travel, because of the cost of fuel and high cost of the tickets.

The main advantage is that it was very fast.  However, the disadvantages were that it was very expensive and not very efficient in terms of fuel (which is why it was expensive).  Not very many passengers could fit in the plane and it used more fuel per passenger than a subsonic flight would.
