Icelandair 763 In BOS 3rd June

Sun Jun 05, 2005 2:03 pm

Hey all. Just curious if anyone had any information as to why the Icelandair 767-300 made an appearance in BOS. Was this a last-minute substitution? Or does it operate other routes when not flying to SFO? Any chance we'll see it again here over the Summer?

Also, how does FI do in BOS? I've heard they do well and they're flights are generally full year-round (although, with a 757 it's easier to do than with larger aircraft).

The single 767-300 FI has in scheduled service this summer will make rotations serving SFO, BOS and LHR. It will be serving BOS and LHR when the aircraft is not operating the 2 to 4 flights weekly service to SFO (4x weekly in July/August)

BOS like all the other destinations of FI has a high load factor, this is of course especially the case in summer. As the range for BOS allowed rotations with SFO and LHR (and because of good pax load predictions) it was decided to serve BOS with the 767-300.

I don't understand people....did you not read the post and just jump to the bottom to make a reply? It clearly talks about the 763 being in the LHR rotation.....geesh.  Cool

At the moment FI are bringing the 763 TF-FIB to LHR about 3-4 times per week on the FI452 flight, replacing the 753 TF-FIX which normally does the LHR rotation.

Hello folks,

If the screeners like it, there should be a photo of TF-FIB at BOS showing up within the week (or 10 days!? LOL). I caught it today at approx 18h30.
Bonjour Chef!

Does anyone know how the 763 is fitted-out in Business Class?

Does it offer beeter seating that the 757s, which are akin to U.S. domestic F seats.

Quoting PresRDC (Reply 9):

TF-FIB is fitted out as follows:
28 J - seatpitch varies from 37" to 39" (seat width 21")
239 Y - seatpitch varies from 30" to 32" (seat width 17.5")

On the 757 aircraft the number of Business/Economy class varies between aircraft used, but the total number of seats is 189.
Business - seatpitch 38" (seat width 21")
Economy - seatpitch 31" to 33" (seat width 17")

There is no PTV IFE-system in Business Class on the 763, but pax receive a DigEplayer, which is a handheld device with video-on-demand technology that delivers a good choice of in-flight entertainment choices: 8 movies , 8 short subjects, cartoons, music videos and a range of music from classical to rap.

More info regarding the 763 flights SFO, BOS and LHR:

FI 671 1346 KEF SFO 1640 1835 0 15JUN05 31AUG05 767 8:55
FI 670 1346 SFO KEF 2335 1455+1 0 15JUN05 31AUG05 767 8:20

FI 450 36 KEF LHR 2 0745 1145 0 15JUN05 31AUG05 767 3:00
FI 451 36 LHR 2 KEF 1300 1500 0 15JUN05 31AUG05 767 3:00

FI 631 257 KEF BOS E 1645 1820 0 17JUN05 30AUG05 767 5:35
FI 630 257 BOS E KEF 2130 0630+1 0 17JUN05 30AUG05 767 5:00

So the rotation would be like in this example:

Wednesday FI450 KEF dep 07.45
Wednesday FI450 LHR arr 11.45
Wednesday FI451 LHR dep 13.00
Wednesday FI451 KEF arr 15.00
Wednesday FI671 KEF dep 16.40
Wednesday FI671 SFO arr 18.35
Wednesday FI670 SFO dep 23.35
Thursday.....FI670 KEF arr 14.55
Thursday.....FI671 KEF dep 16.40
Thursday.....FI671 SFO arr 18.35
Thursday.....FI670 SFO dep 23.35
Friday.........FI670 KEF arr 14.55
Friday.........FI631 KEF dep 16.45
Friday.........FI631 BOS arr 18.20
Friday.........FI630 BOS dep 21.30
Saturday.....FI630 KEF arr 06.30
Saturday.....flying KEF-LHR again, etc…

Thanks. So it looks like the 763 will not be adding much in the way of comfort for Business Class passengers.
