AA Suspension Impact On Freighter Service
Interesting read on how AA's suspension of nearly all long-haul international flights to Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and South America will push more cargo to freighter aircraft.
The idling of 135 wide-body jets will crimp air cargo capacity, forcing a shift to more expensive freighters. Please plan accordingly in the understanding that freighters carry about half of air cargo in normal times. This means we may face delays as well as increments in rate costs due to excess demand in accordance to capacity currently in place.
