If noise is so wonderful, why don't they move C and F to the back of the plane to take full advantage of the beneficial health effects noise imparts? If it were me, I would let Y suffer in silence at the front - but I'm just cruel like that...

Thanks! You made my day  Wink New C in the back of the good old MD80's....That must be a dream to remember  bigthumbsup

Quoting EbbUK (Reply 43):Also if it is possible to have "quiet zones" on both A380 and 787, I wonder which one would win the "quality of noise" test?
That may be subjective.

The point is that the "Quiet Zone" will be that, no kids no rowdy groups , just people who want to sleep and be in a non-human sound environ. (we have them on our trains here in UK no mobile phones in certain carriages)
Who'd win the "quality of noise" test, Airbus with the 380 or Boeing with the 787? We'll know very soon.

He is trying to spin white noise on an aircraft as a good thing.

You mean like you trying to spin it as a bad thing with the above post? How do you know its bad? You are subjected to white noise more than you think and you probably never even noticed.

Quoting 777236ER (Reply 28):
Yes, I think I can.

I think you need to re-read my post. You cannot assume because insulation is thinner, it is less effective. It may be, buy you have no evidence that it is.

I think the question is not whether it will burn or not, but rather will it keep burning after the source is removed. Did it burn like a sheet of paper or go out once you took the flame away?

It didn't go up like a sheet of paper, but it didn't go out right after I removed the flame. It kept going for about ten seconds before going out, and only blackened the bottom face of the cylinder. Thinking about the worst-case scenario (like the China Airlines 737 a few days ago) it wouldn't make much of a difference what was the soundproofing material.

You really can not gather any conclusion as the cork that you used for your experiment had probably been soaked with alcohol.

To be more accurate you have to re -do the test with a fresh cork, that has not been utilised.

Just like the experimenter, no doubt! That's true though, a wine-soked sample probaly isn't ideal...

You didn't read everything I wrote before making this knee-jerk response. I like white noise, and explained why. yes

Funny, guys. I was going to light up a corkboard too, but you know, since it's useful I decided against it. It's just a simple little test, no need to get pissy.

That being said, are there different types/grades of cork? Different densities would have different properties, especially concerning weight and perhaps sound absorption.

Pissy? I was simply pointing out a fact as to why the cork screw kept burning longer then expected.

My apologies for actually wanting to teach something around here  Yeah sure

Virgin should probably look into acquiring MD-80's so they can market the aft section as a "flying spa - home of the turbofan massage".

He might be amazed or probably shocked to find out that Airbus will soon manage to further reduce cabin noise across their portfolio, thanks to a natural and environmentally friendly insulation in which my country (Portugal) is the number one producer.

Your cour cousins to the north and east are quite the cork producers as well.. maybe not quite as much as Portugal, but Spain produces a lot.

All noise isn't created equal. Considering how active noise cancelling uses opposite amplitude noise of the same frequency to create silence...or theories to that effect.
What the...?

After Randy Baseler, now we have Randy Baseless ...

Pretty sad ...

I am always amused at how some people, time and again, react in such tragic ways to such trivial issues. It really does not reflect well upon the posters.

Randy still has a few things to learn about blogging. However, I admire him for doing so.

As he noted, there are very few executives out there blogging. Wish more did, including someone from Airbus.
