Cargo Question?

Hello IFC,
I was wondering how many pounds of cargo should I put in a 737-800 with about 130 PAX onboard and if there is a website to calculate this information in the future. Thanks!

I personally just act is if each passenger brought 50 pounds of luggage to get my cargo weight

I just do the number of passengers x 30kgs because usually, that’s all airlines allow. In this case it would be 130x30=3,900kgs. I also add some extra cargo to round that number to 4000 or 5000 but that’s just what I do.

Hey!

I always use FPLtoIF.com to do my flight planning! The site plans a full flight plan for you, and also calculates V-speeds, pax, cargo and fuel for you!

Have fun flying!

Airlines dont just carry passenger cargo they carry regular cargo aswell to make a little extra money.

Palleted cargo typically is more profitable than passengers.
