AAL stock forecast as Tuesday trading at $14.18 As of 10:39 AM EDT.

The idea of resuming commercial supersonic flight by the end of the decade has generated a lot of excitement in recent years. Boom Supersonic, one of the most promising competitors, has signed a deal to sell 20 Overture aircraft to American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL), only a year after doing the same with United (NASDAQ:UAL). In order to significantly reduce transatlantic and trans-pacific flight durations, the Overture is planned to transport 65 to 80 passengers and travel at speeds of up to Mach 1.7 (1,304 mph).

Finding a producer of engines is the issue. Following the conclusion of numerous engineering investigations, Rolls-Royce (OTCPK:RYCEY) recently stated it would discontinue the project. As a result of the remarks, GE Aviation (NYSE:GE), Honeywell (NASDAQ:HON), and Safran Aircraft Engines (OTCPK:SAFRY) all said that they had no interest in developing a supersonic engine for Boom. Another manufacturer of comparable engines, Pratt & Whitney, a division of Raytheon (NYSE:RTX), referred to the plans as tangential to its core competencies.

Boom has declared that it aims to make its aircraft as ecologically friendly as possible, which is a commendable and vitally necessary goal, but building the airplane is already difficult and expensive, according to Henry Harteveldt, a travel analyst at Atmosphere Research Group. However, Boom may turn into a candidate for purchase for aerospace firms like Boeing (NYSE:BA) or Airbus if it were able to produce both an airplane and an engine effectively (OTCPK:EADSY). The company might also make a tidy profit by selling its engine design, or it could take advantage of the boom and profit from the restart of commercial supersonic flights.

Fun fact: Although there have been numerous supersonic military aircraft, only the Concorde and the Tupolev Tu-144 was designed to transport civilians. In contrast to the Tu-144, which had limited service and was retired in 1999, the Concorde was grounded following a deadly disaster in 2000 and went out of service in 2003 as a result. When commercial supersonic travel began to take off in the 1960s, it was such a hot topic that Seattle called its NBA team the SuperSonics after Boeings (BA) later-canceled supersonic transport project.

The latest trading session saw a significant decline in the price of American Airlines (AALshares )s as a result of a general market sell-off that affected all three major averages, extending a tough weekly loss. The outcomes from FedEx particularly worried traders.
