New Life For Combi's?

Sun Nov 11, 2001 12:01 am

Just had this thought going through my head. With passenger loads declining, and cargo industry still growing, would this increase the demand for combi aircraft? I doubt cargo has any fear of flying.  Smile I realize that passenger loads are going to come back, but it is something to ponder. I am curious how 747 Combi flights are doing right now.

What is your opinion?
