Exactly how big are these hermit crabs?
How big is a typical hermit crab?
Assuming we want the crabs to be lounging in relative comfort (and that they are relatively small) and not in a jam-packed, RSPCA nightmare of a plane…
Also assuming that they are good friends…
Two per seat (32), four per overhead locker (+64; there’s one per seat according to Ottery St. Mary; make sure to take care when opening —- hermit crabs have shells and may have shifted during flight); two under each seat (+32). Four in the fridge (+4; assuming the fridge is relatively roomy, I guess?), two in the microwave (+2), two in the sink in the toilet (+2) —- not in the toilet itself because it’d get lost as aircraft toilets don’t have water in them permanently (you know, like normal toilets do?), that equals 138.
32 + 64 = 96 + 32 = 128 + 4 = 132 + 2 = 134 + 2 = 136
I assume that the worktops are relatively roomy (they could fit two otters), so six more (+6); two more per overhead locker (+32; let’s assume these hermit crabs are of average size and get on well with each other).
136 + 6 = 142 + 32 = 174
I think you could easily have 174 hermit crabs aboard G-ERTI, without putting any into the flight deck.
That was fun.

Shall we recombine with the familial gathering in the vestibule?
Yeah, it’s brilliant. Once, we nearly went to Devon!
