I recall a flight many years ago (I believe on a 737) that was only about half full. Seats were not assigned, but we as SLF found the first 15 rows or so taped off as not available. The cabin crew when asked indicated that the reason for having us all in the back half was balance management.
It was Boeing that came up with that idea!! If interested I could send you the details how we did our loadsheet with adjusted weights.

There's a post of mine somewhere here about a onetime BMI flight from Inverness to Heathrow, normally a domestic A319, but instead one of their mid-haul A320s had been sent. These had a huge business class cabin for an A320, but being a domestic flight it was only eonomy pax. For W&B reasons however they could not be nicely spread across the rear cabin which had around 80 Y seats. There were around 50 pax booked so all were squished 6-abreast in the first 8 rows of Y, with the remaining rows behind, and all the business seats, empty.
