Cons: "On our flight to Seattle there was a flight attendant who looked a little annoyed with her day, but hey, we all have days. She didn’t treat me any different than anyone else."
Pros: "I think better than other airlines. Provided a snack, beverages and wine for purchase. Very friendly team. I had no problems. I really appreciate the late flight from PDX to PHX on weekdays. It is very convenient for work related travel. I don't think any other airline flight back to PHX that late. I also appreciate that they offer power, free limited WIFI (to text/send messages)."
Cons: "I did not really dislike anything. I think it was a good experience overall. However, there is room for improvement for all airlines. It would be nice to see more comfortable seats, additional amenities and lower prices. I bought the last minute ticket one war PDX to PHX for $500. I think that was a little expensive, even for last minute traveling."

Cons: "By this time in my trip, my day had been so long, and I was still so upset over how late we were due to some selfish individuals and an airline catering to them, that I was not capable of assessing the flight. Icelandair did lose my check baggage. Which means that out of three times I have flown with Icelandair, they have lost my checked baggage twice. Another reason I doubt I will ever use Icelandair again."

Pros: "Everyone was so nice & accommodating. I would definitely book them again."
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it.

Everyone around thought that was sibling or daughter of a passenger nearby until the last duration of the flight. She was very cute and it wasn't a big deal, but if there was a way for people around her to know I'm sure we would have helped her out a lot earlier in the flight with all her stuff."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."

Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine and the inflight entertainment provided good entertainment."
Cons: "From the begining the trip was plagued by delays. I was supposed to leave Monterey at 0600, we didnt leave until 0630. Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection.

Cons: "Purchased ticket and it was this thing called Basic Fare Ticket???? Which means No refund, No Cancellation or Rescheduled Flights! You cannot pick your seat and will not be able to purchase a better seat even if it says available. Paid way too much and had to stay longer for my father's heart attack and lost the ticket and had to but a 1 way ticket back home and had to purchase my seat on top of all this.

Same last name different first name so I had to wait till it got figured out and then be the last person to board so once again I couldn't find a place for my bag. Probably one of the worse flying experience I've had in a while"
