 Aviation and the Global Atmosphere
The basic assumption in market studies that determine the routing and size of the supersonic fleet is that the supersonic fleet will replace certain routes of the given subsonic fleet, corresponding to about 10% of the subsonic fuel burn.

For this reason, it is more appropriate to compare the effect of the combined fleet to the subsonic fleet, rather than to look at the supersonic fleet in isolation.
