Icelandair 80th Anniversary Livery at LHR on 20-12-20

Hello everyone,
I just thought id share what I do as my job as a check-in/gate agent at LHR for dedicated on the Icelandair product. Also, as the reworked 757 has come out, today was the perfect opportunity to show you guys one of my favourite liveries on the Boeing 757! the Icelandair 80th Anniversary livery that came to Heathrow today!
Enjoy:


After waiting 45 minutes for a stand and a stand change at a busy Heathrow Terminal 2, FI450 is entering stand 238


Cleaning in progress, interior of the aircraft


The #mystopover slogan on the winglet


Wingview with a Turkish Airlines A350 next door, I was checking to see if the fuel truck arrived


Tailshot, its definitely bigger in person :)


Side shot with registration TF-FIR


Engine view, Infinite Flight have without a doubt done a fantastic job on their reworked 757 engine model


Boarding completed, Jet Bridge off


Ready for Pushback


This is what “we” call a swing push back, when the aircraft pushes back and first pushes back the other way in order to create some space as there may be construction or not enough space to push back normally


Swing pushback almost complete as FI451 is ready for its journey to Reykjavik (Keflavik International Airport)

I really hoped you enjoyed seeing this aircraft and if you want more just let me know!
Happy Sunday everyone!
