Their website also states that one of those 12 a/c is a 737-300F. Making their fleet 9 757-200's, 1 757-300, 1 757-200F, and 1 737-300F. Quite a mixed fleet for such a successful airline. Their website is incorrect in that the 737-300F went to Shanghai Airlines as B-2605 (Ex: IcelandAir TF-FIE).
The 767 a/c that will most likely be used on this new route is 767-383ER MSN
: 25465. First went to SAS as SE
-DKX on 10/25/1991. On 11/12/2003 the a/c went back to it's lassoer but then again on 1/19/1994 went back to SAS as LN
-RCL. Then on 12/22/2003 the a/c left SAS and went to Sunrock (the a/c lessor if I'm correct) and then onto IcelandAir as TF-FIB, the next day that it was under Icelandair(12/23/2003) it went to AV8Air as TF-FIB. On 5/2/2004 the a/c left AV8Air and went back to Icelandair still as TF-FIB under a livery unlike the rest of their feet, weather the a/c is again leased out is another question..
First as SE
-DKX Second as LN
First as TF-FIB with AV8Air Second as TF-FIB with IcelandAir
Their route map is already showing that SFO
flight. And you can choose it from their flight menu. Looked at their time tables and it appears to me that SFO
will start Friday, May 13, 2005 with a once a week flight on Wednesdays only. The flight will be FI
670 with a departure time of 11:30PM (That's a bit of a bitch!) and an arrival time in KEF
2:40PM the following day with a total flight time of 8:10.
The following week, Friday, May 20, 2005-Friday, May 27, 2005 FI
670 with the same times will operate both on Wednesday and Saturday. The following week, Friday, May 27, 2005-Friday June 3, 2003 FI
will operate the same times 3 times a week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Again the next week FI
670 will operate the same times Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Starting the week of Friday, August 26, 2004-Friday, September 2, 2005 FI
670 will go to only 3 times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. And again the next week FI
670 will go SFO
only 2 times a week, Wednesday and Saturday. Then the week of Friday, October 14, 2005-Friday 21, 2005 FI
670 will go to one time a day that day being Saturday. The last listed week, October 14-October 21 that is the last week that that route is listed on their time table.
the first flight is again for Saturday, May 14, 2005 Departing KEF
at 4:45PM and arriving SFO
at 6:30PM with a total flight time of 8:45. Flying 2 times a week though not flying the Saturday, May 14, 2005 though the following week the flight, FI
671 will continue with it's 2 weekly flights. The next week, May 28, 2005-June 4, 2005 FI
671 will fly 3 times a week Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday with the same departure and arrival times. THEN the next week, June 4, 2005-June 11, 2005 FI
671 will run 4 times a weeks, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday with same flight times.
Starting August 27, 2005-September 3, 2005 FI
671 will run 3 times a day, Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday with all the same times. The next week FI
671 will run 2 times a week, Wednesday and Saturday. Then a few weeks later on Octover 15, 2005 FI
671 will run once a week on Saturday but for some reason or another FI
671 will not run on Saturday October 22, 2005. This, just like FI
670 is the last flight of this route.
will be run on a 767. My question is, when will the a/c be painted, is this the 767 that will be used for the route(TF-FIB)? And with the sudden increasing of flights by the week for this route will IcelandAir be able to handle issues? The days that are apart will allow for time to catch up but what happens if there's equipment issues and the 767 running the route can't be used? Will they have a few more 767's or will they have to charter airlines like North American to run the route or at least get them to BOS
where they can hitch a ride up to KEF
on the BOS
Hope this info helps!
As for the drinks....... Can't find it!
Thanks again for a great topic! And Congrats for my boys/gals down at SFO
for a new airline! I'm going to guess that this airline will in the G area meaning that I'll get to see her on BART and if I run to HKG
which I do about a 2-3 times a year I'll get to see her off!
Take Care and again sweet topic!
