I am considering acquiring aircraft to add flights where the calculated payload is less than 100% of the maximum payload. In theory, use of upgraded seats (i.e. not the highest density seating possible) I should be able to accomodate a 100% load factor, as I would not need the 100% payload capability, as I would not have the maximum passengers on board (for example, my 73G seats 124 even though the max is 149). I think this is correct in theory, but I am not sure how this is modeled in the game, or how to figure it out in the game.
Does anybody have any insight into how this works?
