A question for Pilots or anyone else about planes??Submitted by Patriot1 on Mon, 09/12/2011 - 18:01
These are the 4 flights on September 11th, 2001. I am wondering why none of these HUGE planes were not even half full?
Flight 11 was a Boeing 767, it could hold up to 375 people, but only 87 were on it? Flight 175 was also a Boeing 767, capable of carrying 375 people, but it only had 56 passengers, two pilots and seven flight attendants. American Airlines Flight 77 was a Boeing 757 capable of carrying 289 people, but there were only 64 people on it??!! Flight 93 was also a Boeing 757 capable of carrying 289 people but there were only 37 passengers and seven crew! I dont get it. Almost every plane I have ever been on, except the Cessna's was a full or almost a full plane!
I would like any input you all have or experiences with light loads, thanks
