The most *G on a flight

Today, I flew CA 1518 from SHA-PEK. During the welcoming announcement, the stewardess stated she would like to welcome on board the 194 *G passengers on today"s flight. It was a full flight, about 311 on a A333, but I thought to myself that the number was quite high. I asked the stewardess during the meal service and she said it was true.

Granted that it is a Friday and the SHA-PEK is a major route. A lot of people were bumped up to the next class, including my wife. I was traveling on an award ticket so I was at the back of the bus.

anyone have any other experience with a large amount of passengers with a higher status?

Not sure of the exact numbers but HND-ITM , HND-FUK or HND-CTS on a monday morning or friday evening (going the other way).

NH's domestic 747s can fit 565 pax, 773s can fit 515pax.. have seen them packed. Priority boarding is sometimes more than half the plane!!!
