Question Icelandair 767 [767-300ER] seat maps?

I jumped on the bandwagon and booked myself on the inaugural DEN-KEF flight next May, but when it came to seat selection I discovered that neither seatguru nor seatexpert have maps for the FI 767 AC. I'm currently in Economy Comfort seat 9C for both legs. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Icelandair does not operate any 767s. You're flight is on a 757. 9C is a good exit row seat.

Thanks! I thought it looks pretty good.

According to a colleague in Reykjavík, it is being published there that service will be 767 (initially). This surprised me, too, so I did some digging:

Icelandair incorporated one 767 aircraft into its fleet (previous owner TWA) which was used for SFO service beginning in May 2005. While the website shows an all 757 fleet, the 767 is available, though often leased out to other airlines via the Icelandair Group member Loftleidir (under which it is registered, thus not appearing as a direct asset of Icelandair).

Check out the Icelandair Group's fleet website: http://www.icelandairgroup.com/our-company/fleet/

Icelandair publishes that it operates a single-AC fleet, but according ti the Group they do pull the 767 into service from time to time.

Good luck finding anything about FI's 767's. I tried looking in all the usual sources, but came up empty.

Correct. The plane is flying with SBA Airlines currently with no livery.

Thanks JDiver, we've been discussing the 767 schedule in this thread:
Icelandair to introduce wide-bodies next year

I recently flew the 767 in row 5 which is a Saga Class seat but Economy Comfort service. The FAs did give us a few touches of F service such as offering pre-departure glasses of Cava. I think this was because they had extras so I wouldn't expect it next time.

Since I knew going in that the seats were like a domestic US F seat, I was quite satisfied for a 6-hour flight. For an even shorter flight LHR-KEF the Saga seats would be quite an improvement over BA Club Europe which the other direct option on that route.

Thanks for the link to that thread.

BA Club Europe on their Airbii is not even Economy + IMO. 30" seat pitch means, regardless of middle seat empty, the Euro Traveller exit rows offer the best seating. I'm happy with what FI will offer for what is essentially a mid-haul flight.

Our LHR-KEF flight was carried out by Boeing 767-319(ER)(WL) - MSN 30586 / LN 808 TF-ISO "Svörtuborgir", FY's first 767. We had seats 2D and G, which were of course recliners similar to US domestic two class First with a rear seat mounted IFE screen and a 5 VDC USB charging port. The IFE is operated with a seat side hand controller.

Lady JDiver's seat tray actually broke about a 190 degree angle in the hinged center, so it was tricky for the food tray (essentially a light lunch). The 2.5 hour flight was comfortable enough for that stage length.

Wines available included a sparkler, Mont Marçal Cava Reserva N/V; Domaine des Malandes Vieilles Vignes Tour du Roy Chardonnay, Willm Riesling Réserve Riesling from Alsace; Melini Pian del Masso Sangiovese from Tuscany, and a Imperial Reserva Tempranillo from Rioja.

Y seat review

We recently completed a r/t on the new FI 767 in the back rows of Y.

http://icelandmonitor.mbl.is/news/na...ce_this_month/

While the interior is brand new, the overhead compartments are still small as on most 767s, so roll-aboards only fit sideways. In ORD they boarded back to front so we had all the overhead space we wanted. In KEF we never heard a boarding order; everyone was lined up when we got to the gate and we boarded last, but still found enough space for our stuff despite a full plane.

The seats were stiff but overall very comfortable over the whole trip, even though they lacked the footrest depicted on their website.

http://www.icelandair.us/information...economy-class/

They did seem to recline more than average, and the adjustable headrests' wings were stiff enough to lean against without flopping down. I did feel cramped at the window seat, especially due to the IFE box inside the seat support next to window, the same on both sides of the plane. The middle seats had a similar box inside the right support of C and big box on the bottom of D. Thus only aisle seats B, E and F don’t have the box.

The best seats seemed to be exit row 20 CDE seats, with extra leg room due to the path in front (no bulkhead). Row 19 exit seats were good but had less legroom than 20 CDE due to the lavatory wall. Row 6-8 are Economy Comfort; Row 6 Economy Comfort seats had decent leg room due to the bulkhead, but if there really is more legroom for rows 7 and 8 compared to Economy I didn’t see it. On the KEF-ORD flight rows 7-8 were offered as Economy, not EC so it appears FI is flexible on the configuration. I’d still take row 20 center or 19 side seats vs Row 7-8.

Could you assist and tell me if rows 20AB and 20FG are exit rows? We are traveling with kids next year on the 76W. We currently have seats in 19AB and 20AB (adults in front, kids in back). However, the kids can't sit in exit rows and they're too young to just shove way back in the plane... The choose-your-seat map just shows exit row in 19, but the Icelandair fleet diagram shows exit rows in 19 and 20.

Thanks!

I believe 20AB&FG are exit rows because there is a second over wing door. I also recall kids sitting in 19FG on our flight home so maybe FI has different rules about who can sit there. Try calling them to confirm.
