Portuguese charter operator Hi Fly has removed all the economy seats from the only Airbus A380 in its fleet to make way for more cargo — making it the world’s first A380 to be converted for freight.

The airline retained the business and first-class seats as premium-cabin seats have more parts and are harder to disassemble or reinstall.
