As many of you don't know that I am 15, I am. I want to be an airline pilot. Lets say in 15-20 years from now when and if I fly for an airline, what will happen to today's aircraft??? They will probably be too old to fly any more, so will the aircraft manufacturers build totally new airplanes like the Boeing 767-600 or the B777-400??? I just hope I don't fly some 30 y/o plane.  Sad

You can see plenty of 30 yr old planes- especially in the third world. Age of the plane doesn't necessarily reflect its safety or airworthiness. You won't see anything too drastically different as 15+ years old planes are still rolling off the factory (like 752).

If BWB's prove efficient, I guess that's the way aircraft will go, though the design walls with such a design are enormous......pressurisation, evacuation, fuel and so on......it will be a good 40-50 years before the aluminum tubes stop rolling out......so to answer yer question, I'm guessing you'll be flying pretty much the same as what's around today......
