Icelandair technical stop?

Hi,

Anyone experienced this? Flying BOS-KEF-GLA and there's a stop at LHR apparently (not stated, but that's where I think I've figured it will be).

I was wondering if we have to de-plane for immigration or what?

Thanks for anything you can share.

according to www.flightaware.com ICE #436 is KEF - Manchester, then Manchestester - Glasgow. 1hr on the ground (wheels down to wheels up).

Iceland Air website shows the same Flt #436 non-stop to KEF to Manchester, and #436 KEF to GLA, with the technical stop.

My guess is that ICE isn't allowed to transport pax from MAN to GLA, but they stop in MAN, drop off pax, refuel, then continue to GLA.

Pax already onboard would stay there and not deplane.

In reverse they may fly 1/2 full GLA to MAN, add pax there then continue to KEF.

FI436 is a triangular flight: KEF-MAN-GLA-KEF.

It is not a technical stop ... the flight services multiple destinations.

Thank you rkkwan and NoFlyZone for the replies.

I wrote a technical stop because that is what is listed on my itinerary. What is a technical stop usually, NoFlyZone?

Technical stops refer to those that no passengers gets on or off, for just refueling (or in some case change of crew) only.
