Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course, it really shines when considering intercontinental routes in evacuated tubes. Maglev systems can then beat supersonic jets by a wide margin.

Could you bring more on that? I have the faint memory of there being some upper limit to maglev speed, which is under that of pneumatic tube railway, but maybe it was only due to air drag.
