B77W data

Post by UAL277 Kevin Finch » Feb 23rd, '17, 14:08

I'm flying one of the B77W prequel flights right now and the passenger count is off. According to vUAL ACARS, N773UA has 374 pax; not sure what vUAL ACARS' max pax load is.

According to SeatGuru, "A recent addition to United's fleet, the Boeing 777-300ER is United's first aircraft featuring their Polaris product...The 777-300ER has 60 Polaris seats...The 777-300ER has 102 Economy Plus seats...Economy Class includes 204 standard Economy Class seats."

That's a total of 366 seats. The vUAL ACARS data also exceeds the max pax load of the PMDG bird.

Not sure if it's possible to override the underlying database; the only other option would be to file a charter flight; we can set our own pax levels on a charter flight.

Thanks.

These numbers are just place holders. They have no impact on your PIREP. While it lists your PAX load, the main line being tracked is the take off fuel and landing fuel. We may took a look at this later down the road, as our AC database is quite immense and updating these numbers would be a time consuming process.

As I type this, my flight in the Air Canada 777-300 from YYZ-YVR shows 530 pax. I understand where your point lies

It must be a Rouge flight; they stack pax like cord wood on those... LOL. Thanks for the reply, Jonathan.
