I have been looking on the Boeing website and other sources and I haven't been able to find out how many passengers the 747-8 can carry in a 1-class all-economy configuration.

Does anyone know? Also, how many on the main deck and how many on the upper deck and at what seat pitch? What will be the maximum certified number of passengers on the 748?

Thanks a lot!

I'd imagine that this will probably depend upon an evacuation test...and assuming that Boeing doesn't do an evac. test, and simply amends the 747-400 production and type certificates, it will probably carry the 747-400's certified passenger numbers forward.

It will likely stay at what it is for the 747-400 unless a customer wants to configure one in an all economy configuration. Neither NH or JL have ordered passenger versions of the 748, but if they do and put them on domestic routes, we'll probably see a higher number.

748 capacity is 50 passengers over the 744.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The 747-400 Domestic has a typical all-Economy configuration of 628 per Boeing's Airport Planning Guide. The 747-100 had a maximum seating capacity of 550 and the 747-200B had one of 480. The 747-300 was 624.

Boeing's 1969 evac test was with 499 people. I am not sure if a test was actually run on the 747-400 in 1986 (the article is a bit unclear), but if it was, it was conducted with 540 people.

However, since the evac limit is calculated on the number of exits, and a 747-8I will have the same number of exits as the 747-400, I do not believe it will be allowed to carry more then 628 people.

Any idea how many "Slave Ship One" (AKA Corsair) carried in their all economy config Big grin How does that stack up to the 747-400D's of NH and JL?

Corsair (now Corsairfly) shows 587 seats on the 744 (including a 29 seat premium economy type cabin in part of the upper deck) and 580 seats on the 743 (including 25 premium economy). I believe they retired their 743s some time ago but still show the type in their website.

If not mistaken the JL/NH 744Ds have around 568 seats. Without their premium class cabin it would probably be about 20 more.
