Aviation has come a long way from dreams to reality and is still making progress. Today’s airplanes offer top of the line comfort. First let’s start with the aircraft. The world’s biggest passenger airliner is the Airbus A380, and it has the world’s quietest interior of any passenger airliner. CNN reporter Phil Han said:
On most aircraft, including the Boeing 747 and Airbus A340, noise levels are generally one of the factors that passengers dislike most.
Even with the stock standard ear plugs, they do little to block out engine noise.
On this particular Singapore Airlines flight from London to Singapore, the silence was almost worrying.
Right from takeoff, the level of noise was drastically lower.
Although there were four huge Rolls Royce engines at full throttle being used to lift the 571,000 kilogram aircraft off the ground, the interior of the plane was eerily quiet.
However, the full effect of the lack of noise doesn 't really take hold until you are at cruising altitude.…
Flying a supersonic jet was expensive and so was flying on supersonic jet. The Boeing 747 is a subsonic commercial airliner can hold over three times as many people as the Concorde and takes the same amount of fuel. This means that although the Concorde will arrive quicker than the Boeing 747 it is not cost effective because of the number of people being transported by the other aircraft. The average cost for a flight right now is $379, a flight of a Concorde from London to New York in 2003…

leading forecasters to predict a plateau of growth from airline industry stocks (Zacks, 2015a; Carey, 2015). Favorably, the price of oil has decreased enough and no longer represents the industry’s number one cost (overtaken by labor costs), which has allowed consumer demand to increase due to many airlines lowering fares (Carey, 2015). However, due to Southwest’s decision to continue to hedge fuel prices, Dastin (2015) contends the current drop in value will cost the company $308 million at the…
