Now this is funny: Airbus A380 pilots are complaining that the new jumbo jet is too quiet

Is the Airbus A380 too quiet?

Yes, according to pilots for Emirates Airlines, who say they can’t get a good night’s sleep on the world’s biggest airplane because their sleeping quarters pick up too much noise from the passenger cabin, like crying babies. They would rather hear the plane’s four engines drowning out those sounds with white noise.

We gotta be careful what we wish for.
