I love the sounds of an aeroplane. The roar of the engines, the bang of the wheels retracting, the motors running that extend the wing flaps for take-off and the wind whistling past etc etc
Of all the aircraft noises I hate the most, it’s the sound of slamming overhead bin doors! Some passengers, some airlines and some cabin attendants get it right. Others don’t and there is a cacophony of slamming hatches. Its fast and supposedly efficient -but irritating. Slam! Slam! Slam! Slam!
To keep me happy: With one hand, hold the latch open. Use the other hand to gently guide the compartment closed. There is a very soft sound and a gentle click. You can do it quite quickly with practice.
Anyone else, get irritated by this noise?
