Is there a "passenger comfort" component in limiting the rate of descent of any aircraft ? I am thinking in terms of cabin pressure change rate during descent which can cause quite a bit of pain in ears if it is too fast. DOes this rate vary according to aircrtaft type ? (eg: DC-9 seems to have poor pressure controls so its rate of descent would be more limited than a 747 for instance).
