Question Icelandair 767 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.
