I'm new on Aviation SE, so allow me first to apologize for the hassle. I'm sure you get a lot of low quality questions from new users here, and I really don't want to contribute to that. However, I hope I can get something clarified.
I asked the question "Why are there no commercial supersonic flights at present?", and after a few hours it was closed as a duplicate of "Why did Air France retire Concorde?"
Now, I had certainly seen this question before asking (I always check for duplicates), and it's hard for me to understand why this is a duplicate. The old one is about a particular event related to Air France and a particular type of airplane in 2003. It was preceeded by a serious accident.
Now, in my question we are 13 years forward in time. I'm not even asking about that particular airplane. I'm asking about the current situation, while the old one was about a particular case, 13 years ago.
I'm sure many of the same reasons that made Concorde shut down are also reasons why there are no supersonic commercial flights today, but does that make it a duplicate? A good answer to my question could explain the overlap of reasons and use that to outline the current situation. For example, Airbus seems to be trying to develop a new supersonic jet. It would be interesting to know what is constraining their efforts, etc.
So, I hope I (and @DanieleProcida, who also requested it) can at least get an explanation for why this was seen as a duplicate. Are the requirements for duplicates here really that wide?
