Hi Chunky

Some say yes others no, they are very noisy especially on take of and landing, have some plugs on you or get some at the terminal, see what you think when you get onboard.

Hi Chunky

They're not that noisy Radio 1 is much worse. One of them supplies you with ear plugs but I can't remember which one . Quite useful for not hearing the wife

They can be very noisy but that's part of the fun! If you have sensitive hearing I would suggest you take some plugs with you, just in case.

like OD said .. the noise (mostly just at take off) is part of the "adventure" ... a silent formula one race would be weird too . i have never considered stuffing anything in my ears .. but if you are really sensitive (or want to muffle out your spouse) , i suppose you could find it a relief.

Yes they are VERY noisy - but that is to be expected - the windows have holes in them. You can't hold much of a conversation so just make sure you can look out of the window and have your camera in your hand luggage. It is an experience you will never forget (especially when you see that the captain - i.e, the man flying the plane, has no shoes on).
