That's not the only reason. I'm sure the internet is full of discussion about the fall on the Concorde, but as I recall, the market for the plane was shrinking as other ways to cross the Atlantic improved. The plane was expensive to operate and maintain, and was reaching the end of it's life span. The Paris crash may have accelerated its demise, but it was on its way out regardless.
