Just a quick question that has had me thinking. On one flight how many passenger lists are produced with seat numbers? I assume 3 - 1 for ground staff, 1 for in the cockpit and 1 for in the cabin. I could be wrong all together. My thought behind this was if ATC wanted to pass an important message to/about a passenger then the pilots can check it. Similarly the cabin crew may want to check passenger numbers etc without having to disturb the pilots.
Thank you in advance for your response.
