Configurations - High / Low For Scheduled Flights

Mon Jun 22, 2015 4:11 pm

Hello A.Net, hope you all are having a nice day.

I wanted to put together a table with the highest & lowest density seating configurations for various aircraft.

For example:
Airbus A380-800 (Low 407 by KE, High 526 by LH)

The parameters are:
1. Scheduled passenger services
2. Service operates or operated for at least a few months
3. Cabin must have economy class

I seek your expertise & collective wisdom! Thanks for playing along  

Sources:
KE A380
LH A380 scroll down to the 8F-98C-420M version

Notes:
-EK will apparently start a 615 seat A380 service from later this year
-There were once plans for UU to have 840 seats in an all Y configuration for their A380 but those have since been canceled
-Airbus recommended a 555 seat configuration for the A380 in their airport planning manual (Page 67-68 of PDF)

I realize that the high #s for most narrowbodies is easy - follow the LCC trail  
Getting the low #s is proving far more difficult though.

Here is what I have so far:

A319 (High 156 by U2)
A320 (High 180 by several including ZB, W6, U2)
A321 (High 221 by MT)
B737-800 (High 189 by several including FR, IX, JT)
B737-900 (High 214 by JT)
B757-200 (High 235 by MT)
B757-300 (High 280 by MT)

As for widebodies:

A300-600 (High 361 by ZB)
A330-200 (High 374 by ZB)
A330-300 (High 377 by D7) ? - not sure
A380-800 (High 526 by LH, Low 407 by KE)
B767-300 (High 326 by MT) ? - not sure

Please let me know if any of these are incorrect & please add. Thanks

BA are about to introduce a Super Hi-J configured 747-436. 18 aircraft in all will be so configured with a total of 275 seats (14F 86J 30W 145Y).

Thanks for the reply FlyCaledonian (loved that old BCC livery btw!)

Do you know where BA would fly these? Must be a premium market. JFK or NRT perhaps?

Quoting pnd100 (Reply 1):

There is a new configuration with 186 seats for the A320. Vueling has already received one of those planes and I believe U2 is to follow suit.

Thanks for the reply SCQ83. 186 would then be the new high for the A320.
