PAX Customization removed with new update?

I was recommended to post here by Markoz from the support forums...

The PAX/CARGO tab seems to give an "INVALID ENTRY" error when you attempt to custom load PAX via the "business" and "coach" section on the FMC.

It seems the new update on the CS 752 III has adjusted the total PAX number to 178 with limits of 16 in business and 162 in coach currently. Markoz confirmed that 178 was the current PAX limit of the 752 III.

It seems that the new 1.4.0.4 update has limited the seats on the aircraft as this issue is new to the update, and allowed for more PAX customization in previous versions with PAX loads surpassing 200. I am looking for the numbers of PAX per class to be upgraded back to when it allowed customization configurations as shown below like it originally did.

I have listed several carriers below showing that the present layout customization is insufficient.

Per the United website, configuration is 28/114 and 16/153 PAX seats.

Per the Delta website, configurations are: 20/179, 20/173, and 16/152 PAX seats

Per the American Airlines website, configurations are 12/176, 16/160.

Per the Icelandair website, 27/157.

Anyhow, I believe that adjusted seat allowance/customization would allow for better realism seeing how most 757 fleets permit more than 178 PAX total..

757-200 - Typical passenger arrangements vary from 178 two class (16 first & 162 economy), or 202 (12 first & 190 economy) or 208 (12 first and 196 economy) or 214 to 239 in all economy class
757-300 - Typical two class arrangement seats 240 passengers, comprising 12 premium class and 228 economy class. Max seating for 289 passengers in a high density configuration.

The 757 CAPTAIN III features typical passenger arrangements which is:
-200
Business = 16
Coach    = 162

-300
Business = 12
Coach    = 228

I guess what I was eluding to was the fact that until the recent update, PAX loads were customizable.. meaning that I was able to put F20/Y179.. or customize the amount of PAX per section per load. Is there anyway it can be put back?

Typical loads for all carriers yes, however this truly limits the aircraft's true potential. Especially since airlines like Delta (the largest 757 user) has a majority of the fleet fitted to carry up to 199 PAX.
