747-400 PAX QOTS II - Seating Config

Recommended Posts

I have searched through the manual and forums and I simply cannot find anywhere if there is a way to change the seating configuration of the 747-400 PAX (i.e. 4/3/2 class configurations). Apologies if this has been covered but after searching high an low I'm at a loss.

You can't. weight is weight no matter what the seating config is.

Excuse my ignorance but do all those seating configs have zero effect on CG? I mean not important as you cannot change them but I am just asking to be educated on the comment 'weight is weight'!

Afaik there are 3 or 4 „sections“ in the PMDG load settings into which the weight is loaded. So if you wish to put 20 pax from section 1 to section 3 (or 4) you can of course move the weight... but I‘m not so sure if that makes a huge difference in how a that heavy airplane is flown.

You're absolutely right of course, but in the event of an incident you can be sure the attorneys would point out that passengers were moved around and the pilots did not update the CG from 22.3 to 22.4
