Virgin Atlantic said it would ask for BA's operational figures and, if it could make a success of the Concorde, it would ask to buy the fleet for the price of £1. 

“Having examined the figures, Virgin Atlantic, with its lower cost base, believes it can make a success of it. e will be asking British Airways to give us the planes for the same price that they were given them for – £1,” a company statement said. – Reuters
