I am playing around with different seat layouts of commercial transport aircraft for my resaerch.
However, I am struggling in finding values for the floor space available for the cabin monuments for different aircraft types. The only values I could find so far are:
A380-800: 478 m^2
747-400: 321 m^2
Ok, I could measure the floor area from blueprints etc., but at the moment I still have hopes to circumvent this cumbersome exercice....
It would be great if you could provide me with some more numbers or sources.
Thank you very much in advance!

Since you are working on seat layouts, be a bit careful with Ferpe's numbers as they do not account for body taper. The aft-body taper varies significantly between aircraft, with some losing many seats in this area (777/747/A330/A340), others losing very few (787) and some losing none (767/A350). Forward body taper affects some aircraft as well (747/A330/A340), but to a much lesser degree than the aft body, and the impact in the forward body is usually highly dependent on what type of cabin product is being installed.
