Icelandair, where's our fish?

Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:33 am

“Since January we have had virtually no Icelandic fish,” said Martyn Boyers, chief executive of the group that operates Grimsby fish market, the UK’s biggest importer of fresh Icelandic fish. “We are currently down 75% on Icelandic fish in weight terms over the last five weeks. It’s putting pressure on jobs in the supply chain and availability in shops.”

So what's in the cargo hold? :D

I know that many of FI's 767 routes, were upgauged because they wanted to carry more cargo, and FI carries tons of fish in its aircrafts belly. Sad to hear it affects the one of Iceland's main economic sectors and people's jobs.
for most people the sky is the limit. for those who love aviation, the sky is home...

Iceland's fisherman have been on strike for the past month. Their entire fleet is in port. The Reykjavik port is clogged with trawlers...

Brexit is the culprit. Prices in pounds haven't gone up as they should have.

Brexit could cause even more problems for Iceland. If Britain declares its coastal waters to be returned to International standards, it will push other European trawler fleets out into their neighbourhood.
