DC-9 to be posted. Good job.
I'd like to think by 2100 commercial space flight will be a regular occurance for transportation. With NASA wanting a permanent moon base in the next 20 years I hope in 100 the general public will be flying around the world via outer space. Not sure if it's feasable, but it is a good dream.
Realistically our planes will probably simply get more efficient for the next 20-40 years and still look rather the same as they do now. Pressurized tube with wings. Perhaps after that time frame technology will allow us to increase the cruise speed to something supersonic or our natural resources will force us to find new power sources or both. Perhaps by 2050 some more radical designs and changes will be feasable. I hope.
