Did I read something about Icelandair Boeing 747's, are they freighters or pax service? Is there any truth to this at all or just a rumor? If they are leasing or buying them can someone get me the N number. -Ryan

Are you sure you're not hearing Air Atlanta Icelandic. From what I hear Icelandair is quite happy with their 737/757 fleet, and don't plan on adding any other types, maybe they're leasing some, but I doubt this is the same Icelandair.

Hi

Icelandair did have a 747 years ago along with a DC10.

From what I've heard Icelandair is considering becoming an All-757 airline. They only have a few 737-400s, they recently replaced their 737F with a 757PF, and hold orders for further 757-200s and 757-300s.
For such a small airline operating a single type, which is as versatile and dynamic on both long and short routes as thr 757 makes sense for Icelandair.

I stronly doubt you'll see a widebody in Icelandair colours anytime soon! If it is, it'll probably be a 767 anyway

I do not know about the 757F, but I thought Icelandair had/s Fokker 50s too, is this true?


life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

Yes, sorry, I forgot about the F50s. I meant an all 757 jet fleet, I think the F50s only fly within Iceland from Rekyavik, the small airport near the city (sorry if I spelt it wrong) The 757/737 jets fly from the NATO base at Keflavik because the runway is too short at Rekyavik.

The 757-23A (PF) is an RB211-535E4 powered ex-Challenge Air Cargo aircraft, it was added late last year replacing a 737-300PF

Hope that helped
