Do you notice where the business and premium seats are normally located? There must be a reason to this.
JetBlue went on to ask one of their pilot this question. This is what he said:
“There is less noise when you’re seating forward on the wings. In most planes, the engines are located under the wings. 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. For a more peaceful ride, find a seat in the front of the cabin.”
So there you go. Video courtesy of JetBlue Blog.
