Aww come on. I know it's quite long at 3 Fortune.com pages but it's a great read.

This was posted already but it is a good article. Boeing's business case for it evaporated with the post 9/11 downturn. Speed is not now as important as low operating costs. This may change in a few years so don't count out the Sonic Cruiser completely.
