400 pax on a DC10??? Geezzus Christmas. Talk about high density seating. THE SLF on that flight must have been beside themselves.
Is it the same aircraft that is alleged to have had the problems?

Strangly enough, SFD, you can get 400 full sized adults on an L10 as well, so long as you have the large rear doors.

If they ain't friendly at the start of the flight, they sure will be at the end....sardines, only thing missing is the oil.
