    • Necrobump: Would love to see an in depth video of the potential economics of A380 conversions to Freighters (A380F). Lufthansa Technik has a short term Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for this. But not yet a permanent STC for real conversion, which would require some serious re-engineering. A long time ago, I was a passenger on a BAe 146, which was configured for BOTH passengers and cargo. The first third of the aircraft had passenger seats, and behind that and in the belly was freight. Since First & Business class seats represent the real profit on a route, why not configure A380's with, say a 120 seat premium business class on the forward upper deck, with the remainder configured for freight? Some tricky airport ramp logistics aside, the concept is the long haul business class seats pay for the flight, and the cargo pays for everything else including profit?

  • Actually the problems for airlines are the cost of just stationary aircraft, they need space to park. Also cargo by passenger planes is not that big, i.e. check HK's airport statistics, the volume of shipments decreased by 7.7% on a year on year observation, with a 71.9% reduction in passenger plane flights. So in the end carriers are the ones who hurt most as one less plane in the sky is one large cost extra with significant less revenue.

  • I used to work for a transport planner (trucks) and one of the people coming in came from aircargo in Brussels. Talk to him (obviously) about lost bags. Told him that I learned that a bag is never 'lost" and that airlines know exactly where they are (learned this from an airline-guy when studying to be a tour guide) and just send it over later. Knowing that, I asked him if "lost" baggage is just someone needing the cargo-space more than you (as in: a coffin, organs for donation ...) or paying way more for it (AB-InBev testing quality of new packaging/beer). His answer was something like "yes, obviously" A few months later when going back from Boston to Brussels with cheap WOW-air, my bag wasn't in Brussels. (first time it happened to me after flying a decent amount) I was not going to complain about it, knowing that I paid not much for a round-trip and that the airport delivered my bag at my door the next day.

  • Cargo flights are not flying only for PPEs in this pandemic. The perishable items that previously flew in the cargo holds of passenger flights are now being transported via cargo only flights as well, and their demand won't go down as they cannot be transported on slower modes of transportation. For example; Qantas' fish flights form Australia to China. PIA's mango flights from Pakistan to UK.

Because I'm sorry I think you're great, but 90% of people curious will just go to Wikipedia and not get Nebula. I mean advertise the Heck out of Nebula, but don't think that omitting details will increase the numbers who get it any amount. They either will or they won't. You'd just lessen the Wikipedia traffic, not the Nebula traffic by doing this.

I can’t help but think a 1000 engineers are right now virtually working on the 797 and maybe making a single aisle, or maybe a 807 and 797. Lets just hope they don’t name it the Plentium or something non-numerical like Intel did. I so wished my Dell has a 1186 chip instead of i7. In another note, its seems like the whole “gen” thing needs a look. 3G, 5G, Pentium i7 and a Fifth generation wing on an aircraft. We see Apple jump versions to 10 a bit early. What’s a generation.
