Why airlines may have to cut back on cargo due to global warming

Global warming – or heatwaves – could be bad for air freight capacity. In this slightly alarmist article from India Today, we learn that aircraft need to be lighter to take off in the heat, meaning that they may have to offload cargo during very hot days.
