Someone's revealed where to find the quietest seats on a plane


Get travel sick or just plain sick of noisy planes when you fly? If the answer is no, go away. If the answer is yes, hello. Welcome, welcome, you lucky fools. Someone has now discovered the quietest, smoothest seats on a plane. 

A pilot known only as 'Christian P' features in a JetBlue video explaining where you should sit to experience less turbulence and noise.

The answer? Right in front of the wings. 

Plane wings moving

Okay, so it isn't baby-proof, but Christian's logic is pretty damn convincing. 

"In most planes, the engines are located under the wings," he says. "Sitting in the front of the wing is like being behind a speaker. All of the sounds of the engine and the disturbed air are projected away from you." 

Burn your earplugs and flush away your travel sickness pills, people. A NEW LIFE AWAITS.
