Finnair moves a lot of freight compared to other airlines of the same size due to various reasons - geography being one. I am surprised that cargo ( belly ) is almost never discussed on A.net. It is 99% passenger related discussions.
I would guess Finnairs incomes are some 75% pax and 25% cargo - only guessing no source...
Are you kidding? Just about every thread about the 777 ends up discussing being the 777 vs A330/350 and how the 777 is superior in cargo capacity.
Oh, and every single thread about Icelandair points out to the fish carried as cargo.
Finnair is as fishy as Icelandair. A high percentage of the Finnair cargo is fish.
