A-380 Freighters on the Way
A380 Freighters
     Lufthansa Technik is busy reconfiguring an expanding menu of aircraft turned into freighters, including a scheme for a possible Airbus A380 to-cargo modification.
     With every A380 in the world grounded, with its almost miniscule cargo lifting capacity, the word that the world’s biggest passenger carrier might find a second life as a freighter could be an “Oh my God!” moment for some, but surely better than a punch in the nose indeed.
     What’s more, not only will modification comply with regulatory exemptions during the coronavirus crisis, Lufthansa Technik said that making the conversion permanent is no big deal.
     Back in the day, A380 pure freighters were supposed to go to Emirates, FedEx, and UPS, but by 2005 orders for more that two dozen of the freighter variant were cancelled.
