What Boeing Jetliner Has The Loudest Cabin?

Tue Jan 02, 2007 6:53 am

I herd that 707s had a very loud cabin, and I was wondering what Boeing jetliners had the loudest amount of cabin noise. I have have flown on original, classic and New Generation 737s, and I believe 737 are on the list. I herd a Tristar has a higher amount of cabin noise than a 747 classic, so I do not think 747 will the list. When I say cabin noise, I mean noise coming from the engine into the cabin.

The 737-200 would be a contender for sure.

Not to sure, never been on one but how about the back of a 717 or a 727? Other then that a 707 or a 737-100/200 would be a good bet...

last couple rows inside the old DC9s are pretty loud. Same can be said for the old 732s.

The drivers seats of a 727 were very loud until a high enough speed was reached and the shock moved aft of the flight deck, which lowered noise significantly.

Depends on where you sit, the worst for me personally was the sitting next to an MD-80 engine, but it is fine if you are sitting in the front or middle of that A/C. The 707 probably for jets as a general winner, because others like the 727 would be loud depending on seat location and when the correct speed was reached.

Quoting ACDC8 (Reply 1):

I agree, I flew AS 732C yesterday ANC-DLG and was in the very last row(18D) and had my Zune turned most of the way up and the A/C was still louder. I fly them regularly, but I think the 732 takes it for me. I havent been on a 727 in a very long time though.
