    Default Why is the condition not called from method...

    I am learning core java fundamentals, experimenting with the logic and getting a hold of the programming concepts. I have written a simple code having a Flight class and trying to understand why the "if (passengers>seats)", condition does not get called and the message does not print on screen from handleTooMany() method when i create new passenger instances in main, where count is > 250. Here is the code:

    public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Flight Flight2 = new Flight();
    int i;
    for (i=0; i<255; i++){

    System.out.println("No., of passengers = "+ Flight2.passengers);


    public static class Flight {

    int passengers;
    int seats;


    public void add1Passenger(){
    if (passengers<seats)
    passengers +=1;
    //System.out.println("No..., of passengers = "+ passengers);

    else handleTooMany();

    private void handleTooMany(){
    if (passengers>seats)
    System.out.println("Too many passengers. Passengers exceed seats...");


    Thank you.

    Moved to the "What's wrong..." section.

    Be sure to wrap any code in code tags.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
