Seems odd it will sit a whole day.
MCO, TPA, SEA, DEN, PDX, YVR, ANC are all other examples of destinations that the aircraft sits idle after arrival for 20-23 hours prior to operating the return flight to KEF.
DFW will also follow the same pattern when it starts this spring.
Can someone shed some more light on this a/c utilization strategy? Is it due to the constraints at KEF? Very unusual situation.
Most likely too far west to make the turn and get back for the Europe banks in KEF. Northeast cities probably arent a problem to do a quick turn a make it back.
