LONDON (AP) — British Airways suspended Concorde operations Tuesday after British and French officials advised the airline they intended to revoke the supersonic plane's airworthiness certification, the airline said.

The morning flight from London to New York was canceled, as well as the later return flight from New York, the airline said.

British Airways previously had suspended Concorde flights only for one day following the crash of an Air France Concorde on July 25 which killed 113 people.
