I was watching Just Planes' most recent JFK video and I saw an Iberia 757. I know that the 757 is more than capable of flying from Spain to New York, but does nayone know if there is regular 757 route, or if it was a one-time thing.

I also saw an Iberia 757 on the video. I doubt it could make the flight from Israel non-stop, so does anyone know why it would have been at JFK? I thought El Al always used 747s at JFK.

Usually, Iberia operates either DC-10's or 747's to JFK (according to demand); it's 757's are mainly used for regional and medium haul work (North Africa, including Equatorial Guinea, the only spanish-speaking nation in Africa!)

It may have been drafted in at the last minute, owing to a problem with the 747 or DC-10 at MAD. (Of course some pax. would have had to be put up in a hotel if this was the case).

I'm afraid I have no idea about that El-Al plane; did you check the reg.? It may have been on wet-lease to another US/other airline. Perhaps in that case, it was a VIP jet for the Isreali gov't (but in El-Al colours)??

I don't know if they still do it, but EL Al used to fly from TLV to New York (JFK/EWR) with 757 equipment via London (either LGW or LHR, I don't know which).

Ive seen 757s, 762s, 742s, and 744s at JFK and 757s at EWR. I think scheduling can be pretty ad hoc at LY
