While this idea is something that would readily decrease the distance between the US and Japan, this is also something that would take decades to come to reality. Nevertheless, Boeing Airways brought up this news at an aerospace convention held in Atlanta. And presumably, this news generated quite a buzz, even though it is still decades away from us.
The idea is that the hypersonic passenger flight would fly at the speed of Mach 5, or simply at 3,900 miles per hour. This would readily decrease the time taken to travel from LA to Tokyo in under 3 hours, and from LA to London in about two hours. The present time duration for both these flights now is 11 and 7 hours, respectively.
Dennis Muilenburg, the CEO of Boeing declared at the Paris Air Show 2018, that the next decade or two might make this a reality. And, in any case, this was a brilliant idea that would connect the world and reduce the time significantly.
Now, the only way to get this aeroplane into use is if they use lighter weights to make the fuselage, while also bringing forth newer engines to propel the plane at higher speeds. And this could very well take years for fruition.

The next question is more financial. Would the airway company be profitable in spending billions of dollars over the next two decades to get this idea out of a computer and onto the ground? And if so, how less should the tickets be priced at, to make it profitable to fly at a regular basis?
The president of AirLease Corp, John Plueger, is highly doubtful about the entire affair. He believes that maybe the world in the next 15-20 years wouldn’t be as competitive as Boeing is presuming it to be. And this would prevent other airline companies from taking a shot at creating their own hypersonic aeroplane.
