Is this some kind of throwback? Stretching a 1970s airframe, 4 engines and a 3-person crew.......the 747-400 was more advanced than that and they’re being retired on mass due to their age and inefficiency

There are many used A346's available, some with fairly low cycles.

So the increase in automation requires an additional Pilot? A and B have nothing to worry about.

This is true in healthcare. Since CPOE, a new position, Medical Scribe, has been created. It takes many more people to administer EHR...

I remember flying on a Tupolev TU-154b it had no overhead lockers but frames with netting on them like a 1950's bus I hope they have improved?

Really?.. The TU-154 was a mid-1960's design and first flew in 1968. Have you seen the interior(s) of the Antonov AN-148?, Ilyushin IL-114 and the IL-96? The Sukhoi Superjet 100? The Tupolev TU-204 and the TU-334? The YAK-42? Google it.

What the article doesn't say is that the Il-96-400M was launched in 2017. Quad jets weren't quite as uneconomic then.

The IL-96 was developed in 1988 and canceled by Gorbachov when he came to power. The production was stopped with PW and Boeing's help. PW had promise "better" engines and Boing wish to "cooperate". Neither one has happened and when all orders were cut the IL-96 as a competitor was finally killed. Few planes built still flying till today, e.g. one for president. The 400M ordered in 2017 to upgrade the old 300 design. That plane still has a great value even more than 30 years passed.

Gorbachev came to power three years before it was developed.

The economics of developing and operating this plane don't really matter since the only expected customer is Russian President Vladimir Putin -- he's not going to use a Boeing or Airbus for official state visits.
