What can we expect from Boeing in the future aside from the Sonic Cruiser? Not another model of an existing jet but a completely new design. In other words, what type of jet could we expect the "787" to be?

My guess would be the "conventional" replacement for the 757/767. Maybe in addition to the Sonic Cruiser. Look for the conventional design to come out first before the Sonic Cruiser. If it ever does.

With the current situation of the airline industry, my hypothesis would be an ultra-efficient, longer range jet with room for 125 or so *like* the A318. I don't believe the 717 can cut it, but this is only my opinion, and it is quite late here, so forgive my sleep-deprived soul.

Thinking about it, the oldest aircraft in production are the 757/767 lines (73,74,77 all are new/have new derivatives). Take into account the 764 and the prime candidate looks like the 75. But I feel this is far off into the future.
