Having never really run cargo flights I was wondering if someone knows whether or not a dedicated cargo plane is rated higher than the convertibles?
Also is the Dash8 400CC which has a dedicated cargo portion considered a convertible with seats or does the whole plane have to be cargo to be a ‘dedicated freighter’? ie the dash8 is like any other passenger plane but with a big cargo section.
I for some reason thought that the Dash8 would have a bonus to the freight side because it was designed specifically to haul as a combi type plane. Good to know its not the equal of dedicated freighter.
