Evacuation Limits

does the figure of 110 pax per exit pair include crew ?

How do the small exits on 737 figure in the equation ?

Where the hell did you get 110 pax per exit?

Jeez - that would be fun to see.

per pair !!!!

BA had to limit capacity to 440 when they yanked 2 exits and left 8 ( 4 pair ) on their 747's

Sorry - didn't see the word pair there. My bad.

The actual restrictions are based not only upon number of pax per exit, but also on distance between exits and other factors. I'm sure the FAR's address it in more detail, but I'm too lazy to go check.
