cargo activation

Messagede Atlan da Gonozal » Mer Aoû 07, 2019 10:20

Cargo activation as quickly as possible?
or is it really better to wait with the transport of cargo, because the best money is made with economy anyways?

What's your strategy?

The best money is made with economy anyways, bu it's quite fast and cheap to unlock cargo, and some additional income from it is better than running the aircraft with tonnage only partially used. For my airline cargo income makes up roughly 2.5% from total turnover with 0 cargo aircraft bought specially for it.

As long you haven't made cargo R&D, you may not take advantage of the following, but if you did, the read this:

I made the following calculation with my favorites planes:
On a A380, you may have 852 eco seats (maximum) and 4 tons cargo (bonus)
On a B777-200LR you may have 440 eco seats (maximum) and 20 tons cargo (bonus)

On the line CGK-LED (24h with A380) I have a demand of ±4000 eco seats and 633 tons of cargo (I made all R&D...)
The eco seat is at 3665$ and the cargo at 11772$/ton (bus=4874$ 1st=8429$)

That means that in this particular case, I can run 2 A380 with 852*2*2=3408 eco seats a day + 4*2*2 tons/day as a simple bonus : 188352 $/day

For a beginer you may divide those amounts by 2 because you haven't made all R&D, but that's still ±48k$/day you are missing for each A380

I let you calculate what you miss every single day with all your planes :wink:

My advice is to invest the minimum R&D to get the cargo availability as soon as possible in your fleet

Do all planes have bonus space for cargo...
Well, then I need to develop soon.

Thx

Just activated cargo.
My interpretation of cargo space available on each plane is:
Max payload - payload of PAX = payload for cargo

Now I am curious on how much my profit will increase. I expect a big increase also in the fuel costs due to the higher payload...

Big thanks for your input on cargo.
My ancillary income skyrocketed...

I am seriously considering transporting cargo for free to boost the demand on SH flights and enjoy the anci-bonus on every flight.
