So I wanted to work out what freighters are best on short haul but are bigger than a 757, here are some results:
767-300F (winglets) new | LUX MAD - 55% | LUX CDG - 45% |
777-200F new | LUX MAD - 56% | LUX CDG - 47% |
747-8F new | LUX MAD - 57% | LUX CDG - 44% |
747-400F used | LUX MAD - 57% | LUX CDG - 33% |
A300F used | LUX MAD - 43% | LUX CDG - 31% |
A310F used | LUX MAD - ()% | LUX CDG - 30% |
A330-200F payload new | LUX MAD - 56% | LUX CDG - 45% |
I use African Maintenance. The exact margins will depend on your pricing but this allows you to compare different aircraft. For used aircraft I chose the most expensive lease option.
A330-200F Payload = 767-300F (winglets) on short haul
747-8F > 747-400F on very short haul (<1.5hr)
Classic Airbuses aren’t worth getting.
All Boeing freighters are solid choices.
I will update this in future as I benchmark the MD-11 and perhaps the 737-700C and 757 for comparison.
