Thanks for referring me back to thr article.
Versions of the [B707] have a capacity from 140 to 219 passengers...
The highest seating capacity of a narrow-body aircraft is 295 passengers in the Boeing 757300...
I think those numbers alone demonstrate a difference in what was and what will be.
It's not the size of the plane, per se. It's how many people are in the plane. I say that for this size plane, anything over 220 is pressurizing the systems, the workers, and the passengers. I'd say 300 passengers in a narrow body for 10 hours is way beyond the tipping point. 6 hours? Maybe...but
I wouldn't take that flight expecting anything but misery in Y or dissatisfaction in a premium cabin.
