We sometimes carry freight in the LD3.
I have seen LD2 used by a charter airline here, but never by a major.
We also use LD3 on the B744 for convenience (not the larger LD1) Does anyone use LD1?
The ramp agent is in charge of LD3 management. They keep track of how many we have, and once a week go over to cargo to check their stock. It is in their interest, don't want to be turning round containers on a transit!
