- Are cargo holds pressurised these days? 3 answers
I watched an episode of Air Crash Investigation, which depicts a plane catching fire due to it shipping many expired oxygen generators for planes. The narrator says that a fire in the cargo hold is very unlikely, as the cargo hold is vacuumed, to prevent fire; but however in this situation, the oxygen generators were actually generating oxygen so the vacuum was futile. I also know they carry pets in the cargo hold. So are the cargo holds pressurized, non-pressurized, or vacuumed? Or does it depend on the carrier, or aircraft?
