I just arrived from a flight KEF-GOT with FI, a B757-200. During the flight I asked the attendant about the passenger figures, for my flight log. She said she didn't remember the number, so she got me a piece of paper with all the figures. I was excited, although the problem was I didn't really understand it. So I was wondering if anyone here could help me?
So, as I understand it the CAP means capacity? But what about ETB and BKD?
Also, it the total number of passengers was 127 (ETB) or 131 (BKD), how does this explain the fact that the passenger infront of me during boarding had "Security number: 138"? I thought the security number revealed that you (in this case) were the 138th passenger to check-in for the flight.

Not necessarily, at least in the US.
I've never experienced a check-in system not providing security numbers progressively according to check-in. Also, I cannot see why any system would want to do it another way? Anyways, I have experience on 8 systems, all of them give security numbers according to checkin number.
