|Quoting TP727 (Thread starter):|
Considering the A340-500 and a 777-200ER on the same route (GRU-FRA), with the same cabin configuration and the same seats (models, wheights), how much more cargo would the boeing be able to take over the airbus?
|Quoting Caboclo (Reply 5):|
One wonders where their stock would be today if they had been offering a complete range of freighters over the past decade.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 6):|
Well Airbus has not had too much of a problem stuffing their assembly lines with passenger models, so I am not sure they saw a freighter variant as a big deal.
Even the 777 went over a decade before it launched a freighter model.
|Quoting KC135TopBoom (Reply 7):
Doesn't Boeing have that same problem, their lines stuffed full of passenger jets?
|Quoting Kappel (Reply 9):|
Actually it did, the 757PF. But that was jsut a parcel freighter and apparantly the parcel companies had no use for more of those.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 4):|
The A345 actually has the advantage,
The average maximum payload for the A345 is 60,000kgs.
For the 77E, the average maximum payload is 57,000kgs.
As such, the A345 would haul 3000kg more.
|Quoting Dynkrisolo (Reply 12):|
The 380t A345 has a maximum structural payload of 57.2t or 126.1 klbs (MZFW - OEW)
|Quoting Swallow (Reply 1):|
Belly cargo capacity:
345: 32 LD3 containers/11 pallets and MTOW of 820,100 lb
772: 32 LD3 containers and MTOW of 656,000 lb
The 345 does not look too shabby, but I am no loadmaster!
