Watching the news and at least 1 flight leaving Sana'a with 60 more passengers than can be correctly seated. Sounds a bit like  a disaster movie

And there was El Al cargo 747 evacuating around 1000 souls in one flight. If I remember correctly babies were born during the flight.

Can be safely done. Most aircraft have loads of extra performance. The question is, did they have a stop and go solution (balanced field length), or was it an all engines or nothing takeoff.  ::confused::
