It was a El Al 742F around 199 evacuated Jewish Ethiopians ADD-TLV all the seats were removed in total there was around 1090 pax on that flight IIRC there were a couple of babies born midflight. Source

Before that the record was held by a QF 742 in December 1974 which evacuated 673 pax out of DRW following Cyclone Tracy. Source


Also notable in 1975 during the Vietnam war a World 727-100 on a relief flight out of Da Nang was ambushed and too off with 268 pax in the passenger cabin but had many stowaways it's believed that over 330 passengers were on that 727. Source
