Does anyone know where FI sends/typically uses their 757-300('s)?

Hi United777300

As far as I know they mostly use it for the Copenhagen (KEF-CPH) and London (KEF-LHR) flights.

I believe they use them on inter-European flights. I know they fly them to London, and a few other high density routes in Europe. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a more specific answer. Hope it helps a bit though!!

Just the one, TF-FIX I believe. I flew on it when it was brand new back in March 2002, on KEF-GLA. I don't think it appears to often there though.
As has already been said, LHR and CPH are it's main routes I'd also say.

Yep, Icelandair uses it's only 757-300 (TF-FIX) mostly on KEF-CPH and KEF-LHR runs. I took the bird from CPH to KEF in May 2003. Really long cabin. Was quite a full flight as well.

Yes it is alternated between the high-density routes of KEF-LHR and KEF-CPH in the morning. Where it goes in the afternoon is more difficult to say. It has been used on high-density charters. The evening flights to LHR and KEF are almost always operated by the 752s.

TF-FIX hasn't been photographed on a.net at any US airport so it's difficult to say if it can be seen there but most likely it's used to add capacity on highly booked flights to america if the need rises. Does anyone recall seeing one at, BOS, BWI, MCO, MSP etc?

Hope this helps but I would love more info.
