Icelandair (FI) Flying BOS-PUJ?

Mon Mar 06, 2006 12:37 pm

Can anyone shed some light onto why Icelandair would be running a BOS-PUJ-BOS flight today? I assume that this is a charter, although I suppose it could be a scheduled flight. According to FlightAware, the flight has been running weekly for the past couple of months.



The flight is opperated by a 757-200.

Noticed that last night on the departure boards at BOS in Terminal E...I was a little surprised to see two Icelandair flights up there (one was the regular 757 to KEF, operated by the -300 last night which was a nice surprise), but then I realized charter...

There were alot of charters in BOS this weekends including: Xtra Airways, Ryan International, ATA Charters , and North American. Destinations were Punta Cuna, Cancun and Antigua; ect. It was nice to see an Xtra Airways 737 and ATA A/C whereas Ryan Int'l and North American are usual visitors during the weekend.

If you go to KEF, you'll see a bunch of charter flights to warm destinations in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. The BOS - PUJ - BOS has been operating during the last years in the winter. Actually, this flight was the reason why I became interested in Iceland Air. I friend of mine who lives in Boston took that flight to Dom. Republic and kept the inflight magazine. After I saw their hub system at KEF and the great layover options the have in Reykjavik on all their flights US/Europe, I flew BOS - CPH and FRA - BOS with a 6 day layover in Reykjavik. I had a great time in Iceland!

I apologize if this sort of promoting posts are forbidden, but I recommend you to look at Iceland Air for your next trip US/Europe.

Icelandair does a lot of wet leasing. One bird is in a hybrid scheme right now because they use it for charters too.

If you haven't been to Iceland, you don't know what you're missing!
