Hey everybody! I have one question. Does anybody know what the passenger to crew ratio is on most airlines? On cathay pacific it is
1st: 1:6
Biz: 1:9
Coach: 1:44( don't know exact number)
so is there a standard or does it change per airline? Is there a website were I find this info? Thanks alot for any answers?

In Canada, for safety terms, there is 1:40 max. Otherwise, it is illegal to fly. That is in general, and doesn't matter whether it's first class or whatever.

In France and I do think in all Europe it is the same the minimum ratio is (2 rules) :
1°) 1 fa for more than 19 pax (19 pax no fa/ 20 pax 1fa)then every 50 pax 1 Fa (51 pax 2 fa).

2°) 1 fa for half main exits (type A/1/2) sor for A320 or B737 a minimum of 2 FA
So you take the more restricted ration .
( ex B747 with 50 pax not 1 fa but 5 on the main deck)

In Europe the legal limit is 1 FA to every 50 pax, thus an aircraft with 110 seats has 3 crew. This is the minimum. Airlines can have as many as they want above this. In my company the number of cabin crew is dependent on a number of factors: How many first class pax are on board, whether or not the flight is charter or scheduled (charters work on minimum crew, as do domestic flights). Hope this helps in some way.
