So let me get this straight, the takeoff is typically the loudest part of a journey (average 84dB), yet the landing shows that it comes in at a higher noise level (avg. 90dB)? Weird logic.... Great video though....

Sure the newer Boeings are quieter... BECAUSE THEY DONT FLY
Byron Harano
Interesting; but why care and go through this extra trouble to book a "quieter" seat? Dollar Tree ear plugs and I cannot even hear that annoying crying baby or Reporter with a decibel meter yapping to himself!!!

This guy’s travel reporting is generally not very helpful, and the actual videos and pictures are basic at best. If you want sound travel advice, try The Points Guy or Sam Chui. Way more relevant info

My dad made me sit in the middle seat for 12 hrs and on the way back too my neck hated life 😭😭😭😭

Terrorists are the worst...with all that "Allah Akbar" shouting ❗

How about Noise-Cancelling Headphones?

Announcements shouldn’t be ignored

The quietest part is the most expensive spot-that is - forward of the engines. That’s why it’s called first class.

Half the comments here are fans of Captain Joel; correcting the video regarding the source of the sawing noise often heard on an Airbus.

Screaming babies and children will beat any jet engine noise by far

i hate all plane noises especially during takeoff (do not care about landing since i will be exiting soon). if only the planes are quiet all the way.
Avoid seats at the wing section at all cost !!
Matteo Mariano
Sitting at the back is also noisier as you end up getting the noise from the jet blast coming from behind the engine whereas up front you only really hear the fan, which is quieter than the jet
Jerry Marquez
I can not stand when need to tell you that is time to prepare to land when the flight still another 25 minutes to 30 minutes

I just put on my noise canceling headset. Works like a charm.

dont you see this is a boeing commercial 🤣🤣🤣😋😃

And yet i have never sat in a airplane but is still watching the vid...

A slight fact correction if I may. The barking sounds on the A320 come from the hydraulic pressurizing system. Great video, would love if youd compare it to those in quieter newer cabins as in the 787/350/380

All calculations are deemed pointless if you are sitting next to a crying baby!
