Would ICCT’s recent transpacific fuel efficiency ranking change if dedicated freighters were taken into account? Did the rankings incorrectly reward airlines for carrying belly freight when putting that cargo on a dedicated freighter would have saved more fuel overall? The numbers show that, since increasing payload to aircraft’s structural maximum increases the fuel efficiency of each flight, belly freight is indeed one weird trick for improving airline efficiency.
