The MD-11 Combi - the variant with the side cargo door in the rear part of the fuselage - is to my knowledge only used by Alitalia. Why is this? Is the type uneconomical or simply not designed good enough to take advantage of both passengers and cargo (read: too few passenger seats and not enough cargo space).

Keesje: Martinair does not use the variant that Alitalia has in service. Martinair and World Airways uses the CF-version which has the side cargo door in the forward part of the fuselage. Just like the old DC-10-30CF´s used by SABENA in both cargo and passenger configuration. Alitalia´s MD-11 have the SCD to the rear of the fuselage and the cargo pallets behind the passenger cabin as on the B747 Combi. You can see the difference in these pics:

How many passengers can the MD-11combi seat, I'm thinking not many as the forward two sections of the aircraft are quite short. Is it less than the A310?

And yes i think is only Alitalia that uses it, I can't think of any other airline

In Alitalia cabin layout, the MDD-11 combi could carry 204 pax (30 Magnifica in 2+2+2 abreast in 55" pitch and 174 Economy).
