DFW is within 757 range, IAH is not. Very important distinction given FI's current fleet as they only have 4 767s, all of which are accounted for on BOS/IAD/JFK/MSP/SEA/SFO/YYZ (depending on season).
Houston is what.. 30 miles further than PDX? And 450miles further than SFO which does operate on an occasion with 757s. The one I was on last month had a butt in every single seat. Perhaps prevailing winds are not as satisfying.
I think it’s time for Icelandair to up its game with international business class. They can no longer offer the equivalent of US domestic first seats.
Those seats are just fine for the legs they operate, and the markets they cater to. No, they don’t command the premium that lay flats on BA does, but they are not being sold to the BA lay flat customer.
Depends on POV;
Seats are fine for US domestic first.
Seats are great for intra EU buisness class.
For crossing the Atlantic they really should be called "Premium Economy" as that is essentially what they are.
How many maxes were they supposed to get delivered in 2020?
2018 = 3 -8s
2019 = 3 -8s and 3 -9s (2 and 1 delivered before gnd)
2020 = 2 -8s and 3 -9s
2021 = 1 -8 and 1 -9
