For some reason I've disliked the yellow since it was changed, possibly because it doesn't represent Iceland in any way. I know the current one is easier to identify in the sky but I really think the original could have been updated to fix that problem. Now the newest livery additions with Hekla Aurora and the glacier one are more on par with Iceland. In my opinion the original livery next to them would look amazing.
Icelandair are obviously still using yellow but I'm very excited to see the rest of the livery, does anyone know when the delivery will happen?
As far as I've heard here in Iceland, the Europe predictions are true for 737's and the 757's will be kept.
P.S. While I'm at it, Icelandair is really missing an opportunity by not using its first 757, TF-FIH, as part of the latest advertising campaigns by giving it a special livery like Hekla. It was the plane that started Icelandairs's relationships with the 757 and is the ONLY plane in their fleet that has been with Icelandair since it left Boeing in 1990. It was always a special plane to fly on and I've been hoping they give it the respect it deserves but sadly it has ended its passenger service and has been converted to cargo. It doesn't even have its name anymore.
TF-FIH is a freighter now. TF-FII was delivered a month later than FIH. Still in the fleet, although it has been used in several wet-lease contracts.
If you look at TF-FII's recent flight activity, it looks like it's doing one right now, actually.
