I'd love to see airships back in a big way. They have many advantages over other forms of air travel. Where they lost out was because basically they aren't suited to warfare, unlike aeroplanes.
The fact that they are so much slower than aeroplanes I actually see as a point in their favour, even for passengers. And when it comes to freight transport there are major advantages.
