We analytically study stability of sliding lattice of Josephson vortices driven by a transport current in the stack direction in strong in-plane magnetic field. In contrast to recent findings we obtain that there are no diverse configurations of stable vortex lattices, and, hence, the stable sliding vortex lattice cannot be selected by boundary conditions. We find that in the bulk samples only the triangular (rhombic) lattice can be stable, its stability being limited by a critical velocity value. At higher velocities there are no simple stable lattices with single flux line per unit cell. Oblique sliding lattices are found to be never stable. Instability of such lattices is revealed beyond the linear approximation in perturbations of the lattice.
