They DEFINATELY wouldn't travel in an Air-bus at 6 miles above the ground without a pilot.
I beg to differ. There is considerable evidence that a significant portion of the traveling public would do so in a heartbeat if it was $20 cheaper (or 20 pounds - sorry but I don't know how to create that little symbol on my keyboard)...

Wiggy, I agree with your offspring. AI in it's current iteration sucks (I have a few stories regarding AI on cars) - but is getting better pretty much by the day. I'd say we're between 30 and 50 years from truly autonomous passenger aircraft. It won't happen soon, probably not in my lifetime. But I have no doubt it will eventually happen.
