I'd be amazed if the IL-96 were still being produced in 2010, -M or any other letter. Sooner or later, the babyflots are going to start snapping on the airbus hook. I doubt Russia will have much of a civil aviation industry left then, expept parts manufacture. I'd look for companies like Ilyushin and tupolev to scramble to design a competitive regional jet- it seems to be the last of the booming markets.

Hi, here's my list (only of the two big guys):
B747 (new versions, i.e. a strech)
I think Boeing will develop a 737/717 replacement a few years from now, and Airbus will have the A3XX in then years' time, maybe a slightly updated A320 family, too.
I am not sure about the B757/767 program, it depends how many customers they get for the 757-300 and 767-400. They might also develop a 777-style replacement.

I think the 747 will still be buildt for long time since so many of them fly around and Boeing has to take care of spare parts anyway. Also it is the most known plane in the world and kinda Boeings flagship.
