Icelandair 767?

Sun May 01, 2005 1:11 pm

Hey everyone.

I was checking Icelandair's website, and it says it flys the BOS-KEF route with a 767, yet they don't even say they have a 767 in their fleet on the airlines website?

Does anyone have a picture of this aircraft, or has anyone seen it? I thought they were a pure 757 operator untill 787s arrive?

They have 2 B767-300s. TF-FIA and TF-FIB

The 763 will also be seen this summer operating Icelandair's new SFO service.

Lots of pictures of both aircraft in the database.

Icelandair owns an entire fleet of 767s. Up until now, they have been on lease to charter operators. With the opening of service to SFO, Icelandair has brought back either one or two aircraft and will paint them in Icelandair colors for the first time.
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

The FI 763ERs are operated by Loftlidir Icelandic, Ice Air's charter arm, hence it is possible they are not listed on the site for that reason. Anyway, they will be replaced in a few years by FI's 787s

Well one of them was sitting at MAN 2 days ago in full Loftleidir Icelandic c/s. It's a real shame that bmi could not lease one of these for the MAN-IAD service instead of TF-FII, an FI 752. The on-board product could be better presented on a 763.

The Icelandair 757-200 will be replacing the A330-200 on bmi's MAN-IAD route next week.  worried
