The supersonic transport will be introduced gradually and fly competitively with subsonic jets for a considerable period of time. The purchase price of the SST requires that maximum utilization be made of the plane, which means that ground handling must be improved. The SST will be limited to trips of more than 800 miles and less than 4,000 miles. The high operating costs will necessitate a fare surcharge.
