Especially on long haul flights such as Qantas flies, the lower levels of noise make a huge difference.
Looking forward to my Antarctic sightseeing flight in November aboard a chartered Qantas 744.
Qantas no that they have to retire the aging 747 fleet very soon sad but the 747 leave a remarkable record in history of being the real queen of the skies.
