B767 Cargo Hold Question

I have friend of mine who is going to lease a 767-200 pax aircraft for a start up airline.

Some consultant has told him that B767 can carry a cargo load (an average cargo load, not just containers filled up with say, steel) upto the aircraft's Max ZFW just on its belly holds. I find it little hard to belive but I don't want to dispute anyone without actually knowing the facts.

If anyone is knowledgeable on this subject, please enlighten me.
Thanks a lot.

There are two types of fwd cargo door on the B767-200. We have the large door which is the same door as the B747 and B777. You can get a full size pallet on board.
Most B767 have smaller fwd freight doors that will only take containers.

Your statement doesn't sound right. Our B767 leave here regularly at MZFW, with 250 pax and bags and about 10 tons of freight in the fwd hold.
To put the weight of the 250 pax in the belly, it must be pretty dense cargo.

The 767-200/200ER can carry up to 67,200 lbs in the lower holds. The max structural payload of the -200 ranges from 67,890 to 73,350 lbs. So, you can basically max out the payload just using dense cargo in the bellies (over 20 lbs./cu ft). Typical cargo is anywhere from 7-9 lbs./cu ft, so the statement is not really accurate. If it were true, then you would have no payload left for the passengers.

767-200ER payload is slightly higher, up to 78,390.

Data from Boeing document D-58328, available on the Boeing website.

Best regards,

Interesting question... what are the max floor loadings allowed on the 767?
