There was a special charter visitor to SFO this afternoon. An all white 767 with "yes" on the side and a green emblem on the tail was at A2. The arrivals board stated that this was an Iceland Air flight 838. There were 245 PAX on board. This flight was a non-stop Reykjavik-SFO route.

Just curious to know if anyone has info on this airline.

It's a Portuguese charter airline that operates mostly L1011s on their longhaul charters. You should feel lucky since you are one of the few to see a 767 in Yes colors.

Looks like it's the only 767 they've got...

I saw this plane also, as I arrived on BA 285 from LHR. I assumed it was a routine Mexican resort charter flight.

Hi!

Interesting airplane at SFO. Yes infact is a portuguese airline that belongs part to TAP and part to a portuguese operator called Abreu Travel. They indeed used a L1011-500 and they got this 767 a few months ago. My feeling is that plane only was used during the peak summer season to fly the portuguese tourists to places in Northern Brazil, Punta Cana, Santo Domingo.
Regards
