It will happen, just not in our lifetime. Too many variables currently. Mayby cargo first. Human interaction is still way cheaper and thus safer for the time being.
On a side note, does the flying public realizes the decisions that go into launching a flight.?.
Nope. The pilots will not go with inadequate fuel, routing, maintenance, etc.
Are passengers willing to give that up to a bean counter on the ground?
Are people so naive that me, as a pilot with decades of experience, will stop a flight if I deem it outside of safety parameters?
