Can't find anything on this forum or anywhere else - Sooo My virtual airline lists a B747-400 schedule for flights with up to 446 passengers. But in order to get the Load Manager to allow that many passengers I have to change to Dual Class. My PMDG B747-400x Load Manager indicates 3 classes of loads plus 1 cargo load profile. How does the airplane know I want it to fly with say, Dual Class instead of Three Class configuration?

Keep it simple, just load the aircraft with a ZFW value and don't worry if the pounds or kilos are fannies or boxes. It makes no difference to the flight crew, who only need the number of souls on board in the event of an emergency. It's one of the things you tell ATC when declaring.

Ah yes I see what you mean. Only the weight counts, not the bodies. Thanks for your insight.

 

Keep 'em flying.
