It has been a bit of a disaster really this plane. Late into production, a jumbo when the trend was for smaller planes, a production run of only 14 years.

And yet it is a remarkable aircraft to fly on. The engines are 5% quieter (and in decibels thats a lot) than the permitted noise levels.

The skin is thicker than other air craft too.

The result is a plane so quiet you can hear people talking at a normal volume many rows behind you. They are whisper quiet inside.
