The “average lower middle class Brazilian” who’s going on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to “Nova York” is probably going to go to a travel agent. They will prob...

Re: Airbus Claims that A350XWB is quieter than B787, but is it really?

The posters here need to understand that the noise in the aircraft is highly dependant on your location in the plane. If you sat in the front of a 787 and just behind the engine of an A350, the A350 is going to sound louder. Obviously Airbus would take the time to standardize their testing methods....
