I'm glad for the aircraft industries in general and all the workers that worked in that industry (I'm one of them, not at Boeing), but...
For all in-land travel (example New-York to Boston or L.A.), it will be nice to have a 21th century rail road system (like the TVG, Train Grande Vitesse in Europe), for several reasons (pollution, speed (if you take into account the wasted time in airport, train can connect downtown to downtown, airport are often located far from downtown), more room to stretch, could even have a gym inside, etc.).
If price of oil goes sky-high, it will not be wise to rely only on commercial aircraft for long distance travel.
