Quick question around the above aircraft

When i compare it to the 747-400 it has less seats and the same cruise speed.

Is this correct?  i've had a look at the Boeing site and it states that is seats upto 467 in a 3 class configuration and a cruise speed of .855

Which doesn't match the set up in the game of 321 seats and .85 cruise speed

The speed is because, in AWS, all planes of the same fleet type must go the same cruise speed.  It's a limitation of the scheduling design but it rarely amounts to anything worthy of note.

Not sure on the seating.  I'd have thought it would have come up previously, but I don't find any discussions on it.  I don't think it's supposed to be exactly what Boeing says here, but it should most definitely be more seats than the -400ER for certain, not quite a few less.

Seating capacity on the 747-8 is identical to the 744. Speed is identical, but swapping a route from a 744 to the -8 requires an edit to a new a/c type.
