Back in July of 2003 I flew a CO flight from MSY-IAH. It was a 757-200 and they could not get the right engine to start. We were delyed 3hrs. During that delay, they were pulling pax's off the flight who had critical connections in IAH to make and putting them on other flights that were less full. We had a full plane before they started pulling pax's off. When they got the problem fixed we had 75 pax's onboard.
My question is:
Since the weights are calculated (pax's, luggage and fuel) before takeoff, how could we have taken off with the origional weight calculations. What did the crew have to do to get everything correct?
I hope what I am trying to ask makes any sence.
