Across from Term 6 on the other side of the runway there was a plane where the front on it was solid red or reddish orange and going toward the back was white. Anyway, it was where that cargo Icelandair 757 usually is. Now it has to be cargo b/c there no gates there. What do you all think?

It's an Icelandair 757PCF TF-FID works for TNT during the week and comes into JFK on Saturdays for now on in at 8:30am and leaves at 7:10pm this just went under conversion and it's been flying since mid July.
Long ago, I worked for one of their US air freight forwarding subsidiary, TNT Express. They'd bought the division off the Bekins moving company (it had been Bekins Express), and later sold us off to a company called "Right O Way", at which point I was laid off. I'm presuimg they in turn got bought up by someone else, since I can't find a website for them. (No great loss, from what I saw of Right-O-Way's operation.)
IIRC, TNT owned half of Ansett at one point, and shared control with News Corp (or one of Murdoch's predecessor corporations, I'm not sure which.) Ansett owned a television network, which Murdoch wanted control of, and both Murdoch and TNT wanted to use Ansett as a "cash cow" to fund other ventures.

If it was sitting at the Icelandic Cargo Terminal, It was probably flying an extra section for Icelandic for one of three reasons. 1: Icelandic has only one 757 cargo aircraft and that aircraft was down for maintenance, 2: Icelandic needed the extra lift and TNT provided it. 3: TNT needed the extra terminal space and Icelandic provided it.
