Where did you find this data on ACJet? I think that's ridiculous. I agree... what good is a JET if it can't take a full load, on a short-haul flight. I remember boarding up J41s operating IAD-CHS and having to bump off up to 5 passengers because of weight restrictions. We would bump off passengers before bags, as PAWOBs were very high, and we couldn't guarantee the bags would be sent down on the next flight.
IND-LGA isn't even that long a flight (probably just under 2 hrs).
