How To Read A Passenger List?

Hey!

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?

CAP: C22 Y10 M146
ETB: C3 Y1 M123
------------------------------
BKD C3 Y1 M127
STF C0 Y0 M0

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.

Any help is appreciated!

Interesting that they are allowed to give these out - as long as individual passenger nmaes aren't on the sheet I guess it doesn't matter though.

Quoting CityAirline (Thread starter):
CAP: C22 Y10 M146
ETB: C3 Y1 M123
------------------------------
BKD C3 Y1 M127
STF C0 Y0 M0

CAP= Capacity, the number of actual seats in the plane. There are 22 seats in C (business), 10 in Y (probably economy plus), and 146 in M (coach class) on the airplane.

ETB= Pax on board. There were a total of 127 passengers on the flight, 123 in coach, 1 in Y, and 3 in C.

BKD= Passengers booked. Looks like 4 people didn't make the flight, for whatever reason.

STF= Number of ron-revenue staff travelers listed. There were none on this flight.

Not necessarily, at least in the US.

Generally, they're not allowed (again, at least in the US).

I will take some guesses...

ETB = Expected To Board ?
BKD = Booked ?

Edit: Maverick beat me, but my guesses weren't too much off at least!

ETB sounds like the equivalent of WN's TLOB (tickets lifted on board) counter.

Probably stands for E-Tickets Boarded, or some such. Other airlines refer to it as the REC (reconciled) list.

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.
