The A300 and A310 are tailor-made freighters for regional markets, benefiting from their 222-inch-wide fuselage cross-section, high versatility and low operating costs. The aircraft are in use worldwide with such airline cargo industry leaders as FedEx, UPS, TNT and Channel Express.

A voluminous main deck allows up to 16 main large pallets to be accommodated on the A310 freighter, while the A300F4-600 cargo version carries up to 21 pallets on the main deck. The A300/A310’s spacious lower-deck cargo holds accept the full range of existing underfloor freight containers and pallets – including the industry-standard LD3 containers loaded in an efficient side-by-side arrangement.

The A300F4-600R is one of the world’s best selling freighter aircraft. It has great interlining capabilities – the ideal regional aircraft that also serves as a perfect complement to long-haul freighters. In 2004, Airbus began deliveries of the new A300-600F General Freighter version, with features that include a cargo loading system capable of handling almost every type of container and pallet simultaneously, and a side door at the rear of the lower deck that is sized for loading large items of general freight.

If there were any justice on this board a moderator would bump you off of it.

Some of your antics are mildly funny, but it's become apparent that you need somewhere else to soak up your free time. Adios... I hope.

Yep, but UPS does not define regional the same way that the passenger market does.

You mean like SDF-LCK or SDF-PIT? Those look pretty regional to me.

Where does the jet go from there?

Add to the fact that you have a full boat full of boxes. It pays for itself. Different economics.

I agree...at the very least post on the cargo forum, not the majors
