an improvement that could be implemented is that the calculation of passengers and luggage is taken from the menu entered the FSX fuel and payload
so could interact with programs like fspassenger x pax

It's already like this since the initial releases, and is explained at Page 12 of the GSX manual...

currently takes the aircraft.cfg

"GSX will calculate Deboarding time by estimating the number of passengers on
board, which equals to the sum of all the stations in the [weight_and_balance]
section of the aircraft.cfg"
always calculated as if it were a full flight

My proposal is to take this information from Fsx on information that is modified by the menu Fuel and payload

This information is used for actual flight and is more real

You added this, the manual doesn't say anything about "always calculated as if it were a full flight".

There's an *example* that takes a fully loaded 737 just to show how the calculation is done, but that doesn't automatically mean that any calculation is made based on the full airplane.

As I've said, the calculation IS done based on the ACTUAL station load of the airplane at ANY moment the number of passengers needs to be calculated.

And besides, this should have been very easy to verify: try loading any airplane with all the stations empty, you'll see the baggage carts will have only 1 wagon.
