I'm guessing that the aircraft will be one of the 747s that service the domestic Japanese market, making regular short hops full of passengers - but perhaps actual figures exist to confirm this.

See also: Which airliners have carried the most passengers? for a related question about passengers carried by an aircraft series.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what the difference is between this and the other question? Certainly an aircraft that carries the most passengers is an airliner, no? $\endgroup$ – Ron Beyer Dec 9 '18 at 17:09
  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean one aircraft, or one make and model of aircraft? $\endgroup$ – mongo Dec 9 '18 at 17:36

    $\begingroup$ As the title says, and in distinction to the other question, this is about individual aircraft. $\endgroup$ – Daniele Procida Dec 9 '18 at 17:49

    $\begingroup$ An answer would be possible if there are public databases linking airframe number and total passengers carried. It's unlikely such database exists, think of an airframe being used by successive operators for example: The owner of this database must be above the operators and registration countries, meaning IATA or manufacturer. But such information has little visible interest for them (in addition the number of boarding passengers is not significant, it can be x2 just by the presence of a stopover in the middle of the trip -- else the passengers*km value should be looked after) $\endgroup$ – mins Dec 10 '18 at 12:49
  • $\begingroup$ I'm guessing it's probably have to be a Boeing 737 or A320. $\endgroup$ – Super Mar 12 '20 at 3:01
