Pros: It was all a smooth operation. In particular I appreciated that since my flight from Chicago was delayed and I missed the original connection, as soon as I disembarked in Reykiavick I found an SMS saying that I had been moved to the next available flight, and they even gave me a food voucher.

Cons: They don't give you food on the flight unless you pay which in principle is not a bad thing, and makes for a quieter flight, because it's not the case that everybody is eating, and eating at same time. On the other hand on a long transatlantic flight even a small snack would be appreciated.

Pros: The crew was friendly, and I enjoyed the available movies and music.

Pros: Flight was delayed for an hour but considering the day before when all flights were cancelled and that whole morning flights were delayed at Reykjavík due to a major storm off the Irish coast the airport check in, security, and boarding went extremely well. Staff on board couldn’t have been more helpful and efficient to get the plane pushed back from the gate and get our flight going.

Cons: The plane’s temperature was a little warm on both flights from New York and Iceland with no means to adjust fans or temperature at your seat like most airlines. The entertainment screen was down for about half of our flight back for both of us to New York but worked fine after.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
