Okay, so this is how I'm [roughly] figuring:
-24 LD-2 positions on 767-200, each holding approx. 120 cu ft. of cargo and 2,475 lbs. net weight/container (equal to 20 lbs. per cubic foot).
To get to how much passenger cargo you will have, consider the following: If each passenger (based on 140 passengers) checks two bags at 15"x20"x30" (not exceeding 65 linear inches or 70 lbs.), they will take up 1,459 cubic feet of cargo space, equivilant to 13 LD-2 containers.
To get to how much air freight volume/weight you have (after passenger cargo), consider the following: Volume limit, including bulk cargo is 3,070 cubic feet. If you subtract the 430 cubic feet from the bulk cargo, this gives you the total number of containerized cubic feet left, at 2,640 cu. ft. Subtract what the passengers take up (1,459 cu. ft), and you're left with 1,181 cubic feet
of which you can use for containerised air freight (equivalent to 10 LD-2 containers). Add in the additional 430 cubic feet for bulk cargo, and total allowable air freight is 1,611 cu. ft.
So, based upon this information, this is how I am going about getting my figures for revenue calculation:
If each cubic foot is the equivalent to 20 lbs (20lbs/cu. ft), and I have 1,611 cubic feet left onboard, this gives me 32,220 lbs. of possible air freight with which to work. If you extrapolate a given cost, say, $4/lb
(reasonable international rate), then the revenue on that air freight for one crossing would be $128,880
Does anyone see any flaws with this? Am I going about my calculations correctly? Please help!
