I just realized that LH has loaded a flight to Island in their next summer timetable. They will fly FRA-KEF with an CRJ!
But it's a weird schedule. It's 3times oneway and daily on the other. Also the e-timetable only gives it as an connection via FRA but not as an route from FRA itself.
Can anybody say me what the true schedule is? Is it loaded in the CRS?
I can't remember that they ever flow to KEF by themself, just Condor. But it would be a nice route for the summer. But a real stretch for an CRJ.

It just misses needing ETOPS, which the plane would probably never recieve because it was not built for it and has high enough seat-mile without adding that. Then again, it is built on the same platform as the Global Express and that goes long over water all the time

Wild guess of mine (have to re-check that), but these could be exclusive flights for a tour operator, like LH Citylines' flights to SNN, to increase utilzation of planes off peak-times. These are not open for sale either.
