Question on Combi aircraft
« on: September 30, 2019, 10:59:34 AM »
Could anyone confirm whether or not aircraft such as the 757-200M can take all 3 cargo levels (IE: can it carry CH) or not.  When I look to purchase the aircraft it only indicates that apart from 126 pax ability, it can only carry CL and CS cargo.  However (perhaps mistakenly)  something in my mind going back said that all types of cargo could now be carried on combi aircraft....or am I dreaming this?

Thanks for any clarification

Large combis can only carry medium cargo.

Its the very large combis that can now carry heavy cargo after the last update.

Thanks Deo  :)

It seems a shame really. Cargo seems to be an area that once had so much new excitement yet it's viability seems to have found it's limits somewhat. I can find many routes where the "large aircraft" combi would be viable only IF it could take the CH as well. But given that it can't, all it offers is taking more Cl and CS than a standard pax plane and the routes I can find mostly seem limited to make that viable. Perhaps others have found niche places it makes it worthwhile?  Sadly in my opinion right now, it seems rather useless as it stands. That might be so that it reflects accurately against RL conditions, I don't know, but seems a shame for the sake of the game.

Indeed. And the 757 remains exceptional as well.
However in order to take advantage from such fleet groups, you need to give up some markets.
Not a bad thing though. Just another choice to make.
