Passenger airliners cargo capacity

Emirates SkyCargo has some interesting figures on their website. It concerns the weight of cargo their passenger planes can lift. If anyone is interested it is as follows: Airbus A380 - 8t Boeing 777-300 - 23t Boeing 777-300ER - 23t Boeing 777-200LR - 15t Boeing 777-200ER - 17t They used to have the...
