    Amazon Airlines may already be operating:

    Throw in drone delivery, which not only Amazon, but also Google and Alibaba are working on, and you could have a very interesting landscape in 5-10 years as these eTailers start cutting out the delivery companies and the USPS:

    One of the reasons the FAA is having to get serious about rulemaking for drones is because Google and the others won't wait. They'll just start doing it, and then the FAA will be playing catch-up.
