Dear,

I would like to know what airlines are flying from Reykjavik-Keyflavik to US mainland except Icelandair. Are there US airlines flying that route please? and if yes, to which US cities please?

Regards DID747

Iceland Express will restart flights to Boston next summer.

Given that DL is doing well on the JFK-KEF route you might wonder if other airlines would want to give Iceland a try. A B737-700 could operate the route.

I don't wanna skew the topic but how does the 757s for icelandair have the range to serve Iceland to the west coast?

(or is there sufficient distance?)

Due to Iceland's location, KEF-SEA, KEF-DEN and KEF-MCO are all within 100 miles of each other. The flights are also a little bit shorter than New York - Mainland Europe. UA/CO has been using 757s to Germany for years which are all longer than any of Icelandair's flights.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

KEF-SEA 3148 nm
KEF-DEN 3100 nm

A few examples of longer 757 nonstop routes:

EWR-TXL 3458 nm
EWR-ARN 3415 nm
CDG-IAD 3355 nm

Would Icelandair 's 757 s have the range to do KEF-SFO/LAX?

Nope, at least not with full load. They tried flights to SFO back in 2006 with a 767 but the demand wasn't there.

Answering the threadstarter, no airline beside FI (BOS, JFK, IAD, SFB, MSP, DEN, SEA, YYZ, YHZ and soon ANC) and DL (seasonal JFK) flies Iceland-USA. But, as eaa3 mentioned, Iceland Express are planning a return to N-America.

Cheers,
Sveinn

Thanks a lot for your information. So if I want to travel from Reykjavik to US mainland in February, my only way is Icelandair, isn't it?

I would like to catch a connection to LAX but Icelandair is not flying to LAX, so I think my better way will be seattle, then los Angeles with another airline... I think it is the best way, but may be another one exist...

Hi again DID747,

FI codeshares with AS on the Seattle - LA route and viceversa, so you can go to icelandair.com or alaskaair.com and book a KEF-LAX ticket there.

Cheers and have a good trip,
Sveinn
