I don't think you've given enough context for there to be an useful
answer.  At the very least, how many flights is this 747 going to be
making, and how long are the flights?  What kind of weight are you
removing?  It's easy to reduce the weight of a 747 flight by thousands
of kilograms by kicking out all the passengers, but you're going to
reduce your fare basis for the flight, too....
