Emirates puts giant A380 passenger jet to work hauling cargo

Submitted
 
The A380 isn't very efficient for cargo when people are on board, but with only cargo the payload is sizable. Emirates is putting one of its A380s into cargo service for the time being. (www.freightwaves.com) More...

An A-380 would seem to be the perfect aircraft to convert to a cattle car carrier. Already works for humans as cattle, why not cattle as humans? Remove the seats and you are nearly there. Little problem of how to manage the bovine liquid and solid waste awaits some talented engineers. The WSJ says there are a number of pigs being flown to China to rebuild their herds after the cull they had to go through.

We reported today at American Shipper about a shipment of 200 pigs moving on a 747 from St. Louis to Brazil.
