There is an article on the Airbus website which I assume has gone largely unnoticed.

http://www.airbus.com/en/myairbus/he..._dedicated_freighter_business.html

Quoting Airbus.com:
Looking to the future, Airbus will pursue other widebody freighter market opportunities, with the new-production A330-200F serving as the cornerstone for potential passenger-to-freighter conversions of both A330 and A340 aircraft. Payload capacity of an A330-300P2F is expected to range from approximately 57 to 63 metric tonnes, while a four-engine A340-300P2F freighter would have a 61-62 metric tonne payload - offering high-volume capacity that is expected to be particularly attractive to express carriers.

I'm disappointed at these payloads, even for parcel use.


Your opinion?

Yes, that is pretty weak - especially for the A343P2F.

Just for the purposes of comparison, Boeing is reported to be shooting for 66-72t for the 772P2F and 82-88t for the 77EP2F.

so 57-63t for the A332P2F is actually mighty close.

It's the A333-300P2F we're talking about.

You'd think they'd at least match the good old MD-11. Awesome.

Ah, sorry. Was kind wondering why they were not comparing the A330-300.  Embarrassment I've edited my original post appropriately.

A factory MD-11F was 92t, so I don't know where an MD-11P2F falls. Still, if Boeing can get 88t out of a 77EP2F, that is not bad.

I do wish they had said what the projected volume of an A333/A343 P2F could be. We know the 772/77E P2Fs should match the 77F's 633m3 which is just a bit more then the MD-11F's 610m3.

Still, I am sure an A333P2F would nicely replace the DC-10-30F fleet (70t payload / 470m3 volume) and with ~100 777-200s in service, that's not enough to meet DC-10F replacement demand, I imagine.
