There was obviously some confusion regarding the passenger numbers on last night's crash. We now know there to have been 297 and thankfully they and the 12 crew all survived.

My question is this. The confusion arose presumably because some people, such as myself, believed the seating capacity for this particular aircraft in question to be 252 (6/42/204 F/B/E). What determines the maximum additional seating that can be applied to the initial spec?

btw was this the aircraft advertised as "four engines good, two engines bad?"

The aircraft involved in the accisent is F-GLZQ. It was equipped with the new "NEV" configuration 30J/261Y = 291 PAX.
The flight was full with 297 persons on board including some babies (who are "persons" but don't have seats) and probably Non-Rev staff traveling on jump-seats, on this busy day of august.
Add to the 297 PAX a crew of 12 : 2 pilots + 10 F/A.
