Quoting BoeingBus (Thread starter):
FL Group Hf's Icelandair

Are FL still spinning Icelandair off into a separate business?

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner can fly to Iceland from anywhere in the world, a 6 billion people marketplace," said Jón Karl Ólafsson, president and CEO of the Icelandair Group.

Now let's see. He's correct - technically - but so could most modern airliners providing they made a number of stops to refuel. I assume his current 757s could do it.

Either that - OR, this is the plane that Qantas have been looking for. Hell, if it can fly AKL-KEF (nonstop, one assumes) then it can surely do SYD-LHR!
