you can generally tell a combi by the inclusion of a large square cargo door aft of the L4 passenger door. This is where the freight is loaded. If you click on the registration of the aircraft it is quite clear on some earlier photos where this would be.
On a side note it looks like the aircraft has at least finally got the wash it desperately needed!.

Quoting Avianca (Reply 3): just some airlines still use the aircrafts as combies (Air India, KLM, OZ, KE, Air Angola (I hope that is the correct name) etc.)
I knew KLM still operated Combi's. I was hoping to fly back on KLM, because they often use the Combi's on the JNB-AMS route. Unfortunatley the company didn't book the flights I asked for.

It was dark when I boarded the plane so I never noticed the side cargo door. Can't see anything on the photographs either. Pressume it was removed when the aircraft was converted to full passenger configuration. Would make sense.
