Nine-abreast seating. OK, I know it's not a realistic request but it would be nice!

I think I would add another deck - so it would be a double decker, but still have the bubble on top.
then again, it would probably need 4 of the RR 777 Engines and a wing span about the same as the B52!

Boeing will have to do something with it, they can't just keep rolling out the -400 forever.

Not gonna' happen. Boeing has ceded that market to the A380, or what little market there is anyway. The upcoming 747-400ER is probably the end of the line.

I'm sure they'll make another 747+ sized plane at some point in the future, but I don't think it will be based on the 747.

The day the last 747 retires will be a very sad day.

I would like to see a plug(s) installed after the hump to make it longer and sleeker looking. Long and narrow would be more fuel wise also. With the longer plane, they could raise the landing gear to install 4 lower thrust versions of the 777 engines. I think it would come out looking like the old DC-8 super 63 with the CMF engine change. Now that was one pretty plane.
I do not think it would be cost efficient for Boing to spend billions on a totally new double deck body to out-do Airbus at this point in the economy.

Money does not bring you happiness. But it's better to cry in your own private limo than on a cold bus stop.

I'f like to see the upper deck stretched all the way back, even though it would eliminate the trademark "hump", with increased power plants.

A glass bottom or even a glass top, so you could see everything. That would be kinda freaky huh? Well, it's not remotely realistic, but I can wish can't I?
