Mostly because countries refused to let it fly over them: too loud!

And it was loud. Back then, I worked in Byfleet, just inside the M25 London orbital motorway, and every Thursday at 11:00 you had to stop talking because Concorde flew overhead on its way to the USA. Low, because it had just taken off from heathrow (about 10 miles away) and it was literally so loud you couldn't hear anything else. You could look out the window at this beautiful, fast, silver dart climbing to cruising altitude though, and that was worth it!
