Boeing still does much better than new entrants have. See the Japanese and Chinese efforts to make their own wide bodies.

I'm surprised Tupolev isn't trying to get a bigger slice. But first they have to get competitive on fuel costs.

Nobody is turning on a dime and jumping into the market.

Some will go/remain fully 'religious nuts' like creationists/commune dwellers. No disputing that.

Outside small enclaves of similarly minded nuts, how much influence do you think creationists/marxists have?

The worst they can do it influence things like grade school textbooks (by fanatical persistence). Which is, in fact, good bullshit detection training for growing kids. If a kid can't spot a commie/creationist by now, (s)he is likely too dumb to matter anyhow. The world will continue to need ditch diggers.

I bet it doesn't include high risk insurance for the drunk and stupid drivers.

I've got decades with no tickets or accidents. My insurance is about 1/10 the price of insurance for someone with a DUI.

Suppose someone buys the lifetime insurance then acts really stupid. Do you really think the insurance company is going to continue covering them under the initial insurance coverage?
