They carry a LOT of cargo.
|Quoting Burnsie28 (Reply 5):|
But not like those at NW
|Quoting NWAFA (Reply 6):|
There is only so much cargo a 737 can carry. Small packages and such.
|Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 3):|
I asked because FR, for example, doesn't carry cargo (unless luggage counts as cargo) as it would slow its fast turnarounds.
|Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 9):|
Do you know - I guess it would be impossible to know without the data - which particular routes generate the most cargo?
|Quoting Padcrasher (Reply 14):|
Cargo is not pure profit. It has about a 60% profit margin not counting it's burden on the operation itself. Cargo offices, cargo employees, sales reps, accounting personnel, are all expenses.
|Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):|
Does WN carry cargo on its flights?
|Quoting Ssides (Reply 19):|
Cargo is also relatively big at AUS, primarily due to its proximity to Dell. Every time I've boarded a WN flight at AUS, I've seen large Dell boxes being loaded and unloaded.
|Quoting Ntspelich (Reply 10):|
We also do get an incredible amount of freight leaving AUS, primarily Dell Computer stuff.
|Quoting Padcrasher (Reply 17):|
Well however Southwest accounts for cargo revenue/costs , there is no such thing as a free lunch.
|Quoting Laxintl (Reply 12):|
I saw a report stating that the Los Angeles basin was SWA's number one cargo generating sales area.
