450 passengers @ 240 pounds/passenger (including seat, catering) is 50 tonnes. Normal checked baggage is easily another 10-15t on such flights. Makes perfect sense to me.

There is no doubt the company will survive. But will its current owners remain the owners, or, like Air Canada, will there be a debt to equity conversion and a recapitalization?
