How many cars can you get on a cargo plane? How many newspapers a sold daily in Ireland?
I only have personal experience with commercial passenger planes, so I will assume that a normal plane can transport between 150 and 300 people depending on the model. An average people weigh 75 kg. In addition to that, each passenger has around 40 kg of baggage. I assume that the factor that limits planes is payload (not considering volume, or assuming that cargo planes already optimize volume), so a "normal" plane can transport between 15.000 and 35.000 kg of effective payload. An average car weights 1.500 kg so a plane of 150 passengers can handle 10 cars while a big plane would handle around 23. With these numbers I would assume that a cargo plane with similar payload as a passenger plane can transport between 10 and 30 cars, but I can image that there can be bigger cargo planes and I'm not sure if volume can be a problem to fit cars depending of the dimensions of the plane.
