Re: Iceland Air LUX-KEF-BWI/BOS early 90s

Going back into the 1950s and 1960s, Loftleiðir flew the route using DC-6s. Before that, I believe that they even used DC-4s. It was a very slow multi-stop route across the north Atlantic. My (possibly faulty) memory tells me that at one point the eastbound route was NYC-Gander-Reykjavík-Prestwick-L...

Re: US customs Pre-clearance in YYZ: Who does it?

Frankly, I suspect that it's an airline problem. I frequently fly YVR-BWI and YYC-BWI (Air Canada all legs), connecting through YYZ. I have never had a problem with checked baggage being delayed at YYZ. Just 2 weeks ago, I flew YVR-YYZ-BWI with the usual change of plane and U.S. CBP preclearance at ...
