Hello to all, This past weekend I flew from San Jose, Costa Rica(SJO) to Tegucigalpa, Honduras (TGU). I was really bummed out because I had to fly Taca, this meaning two things, I had to fly airbus and I had a layover in San Salvador. From SJO to San Salvador I flew on a A321. Now let me say I was truly impressed, comfortable cabin, seats somewhat seem bigger, and the cabin itself seemed wider than the 737. But there was one thing that I did dislike I was in seat 9F in front of the #2 engine. At takeoff there was that unmistakable whine/cat/grind that that the Taca Airbus's had. I was impressed no doubt. Then from San Salvador to TGU it was an A320(comfortable but not as comfortable as the A321, I'm pretty sure because their A321's are new). But this time I was sitting behind the engine. So my question is that if you sit behind the engine, do you generally avoid the grinding sound or not. Well I must say I cannot criticize airbus anymore, I really enjoyed it. BUT don't get me wrong I'm still a Boeing man THROUGH and THROUGH.
Thanks for reading,
