I do agree that the Concord was gentler looking than the Tu 144.

A few years ago I went to the Technik Museum Sinsheim, Germany.
They have both the Concord and Tu 144 there - and you can go inside them as well!
A superb experience. They sit there side by side so one can easily compare.

They need to solve the sonic boom before we see any new supersonic commercial airliner.
Isaiah 28:2
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

Matthew 7:25
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Yes the fastest subsonic airliner was the L1011 until the 777-300 beat it.

Boeing are faster airframes than Airbus because they have a bigger sweep in their wings.

Take into account that some of those numbers are test aircraft doing dives which doesn't count.

Well, there's a barrier that is preventing airliners to go faster than they already go which is the sound barrier.
Any airliner that flies that fast or faster will be using massively more fuel and needs specially designed engines and wings.
The Concorde was one such example, it is simply not economically feasible at least so far.
