'Scottish Airlines' liveried XC.99 ...
 
 B)
This one is interesting, although obviously a case of wishful thinking by McIntyre. Scottish Aviation had a good business relationship with Consolidated and were probably aware of the project but this artwork has odd errors in the shape of the wing and engine nacelles. I wonder if it was based on early Consolidated artwork or just a case of artist's memory failure?

I keep thinking of an alternate LAX of the 1950's with both Convair Model 37's and Lockheed Constitution's, in the markings of different airlines, boarding passengers.

204 passengers.

What would have been the capacity if they used the seating density they use today.

IIRC, I did read the Brabazon could have seated 300.
