What are your feelings on engine noise in a jetliner/plane? And for engineers; does mass airflow matter?

People are not fond of the propfan due to its noise and after the fuel price drop i nearly 90s airlines chose the jets. How do you think industry is going to deal with future fuel prices and most importantly is a propfan engine practical in something like the flying car?
