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.

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.
