Today, a Delta aircraft touched down at Keflavik airport; the first US commercial carrier to do so in decades. This ought to have a good effect on tourism and help speed up economic recovery. Selecting a captain with strong Icelandic ties for this inaugural flight was a brilliant move as it resulted in free prime time coverage (news) and a healthy dose of goodwill.
Delta covers this flight on its blog site: “Captain’s View: JFK Inaugural Flight to Iceland”
Welcome to volcano island, Captain John and Delta.
