After watch the first flight of the majestic A380, what do you guys think it will be the next step in aviation...in terms of size ?

Quoting Scbriml (Reply 1):

I meant something different from the A380.

It may not be a size increase , but I hope the next step in aviation is Nasa's X15. The idea of flying NRT-JFK in two hours is awesome. The A380 is evolutionary, an X15 type of aircraft would reshape travel altogether.
