The torture is only during take off, when the engines are at full power. Once the pilot reduces power upon reaching cruising altitude, or even during climb after take off, the cabin noise decreases. Upon reaching cruising altitude the torture will definitely be over for the rest of the flight, if noise is your concern. A few months ago I flew on an MD
-88 from LGA
and I was seated in row 24, it wasn't noisy even during take off.
|Quoting LAXintl (Reply 2):|
I'd take any seat as far forward as possible to avoid the numbing noise in the back of the cabin.
Yes me too. But if I have to take a seat on row 29 or 30 on a Super 80 because I don't have the choice, it's not a problem. Of course that wouldn't be my first choice.
