First time traveling with WOW and it was okay. Price was decent, a little better than Spirit, but the same with paying additional for everything so it's not really saving. Overall, great flight the pilots did a great job getting me to my destination (there and back) safely and with time to spare.

For a 9 hour flight they should accommodate their passengers with free beverages at least. The seats were very uncomfortable. Flight attendance were polite but very hard to get a hold of, they talk too much among each other, like HELLO you're working get it together! My flight was delay returning back to my original destination and no communication was received until a staff member showed up almost 2 hours late.

Again, there was no jet bridge to board the plane in Reykjavik. When we arrived in New York, it took 1.5 hours for our bags to arrive on the baggage carousel. That is an absurd amount of time to wait for your bags, especially when the crew's bags were unloaded from the plane within 30 minutes of landing.

A great atmosphere — friendly, welcoming. The free movies were especially helpful on a long trip (bring your own headphones).

The seats were less comfortable than some other airlines. I'm short (5'3") and the way they hinged when you recline didn't work for me. Also, SOME kind of free snack — peanuts? a cookie? — would be appreciated. But in general, a very good experience.

Low-cost airline! No (free) food and movies on the plain, small legroom and every piece of luggage costs extra, even though it seems that the carry on luggage payment is not strictly enforced.

The flight was fine, but it took over an hour to obtain our luggage! Was probably an issue with Newark airport staff, not Icelandair. No idea what the problem was, except that an announcement was made about 45 minutes after debarking that the delay was "weather-related". Huh?? They can't remove luggage from a plane in the rain? I would gladly have gone on the tarmack in my raingear to retrieve my bag rather than wait over an hour. We had a family member waiting for us for 2 hours!

This was the worst flight I have been on. It was delayed by two and a half hours - because of a mechanical problem we had to switch planes. Don't they do a check before they board people? They only offered beverages one time in a 6 hour flight. There was no food which is appalling for an International flight. The worse thing is that when I booked my ticket it said one meal will be provided. But there was none. The choice of food for purchase was poor. I will never use Icelandair again. And I will discourage my colleagues using it too, who, like me, travel to conferences regularly.

No food is served--be sure to pack a snack. If you're planning to eat in Reykjavik, bear in mind that airport food is especially expensive in Iceland.

It was a smooth flight and the crew were quite attentive.

I didn't like the confusion of boarding. We stood in a long line for quite a while before boarding began. There were three other lines going to other destinations, which made it confusing and packed with people. Check in was a little stressful as well. Due to a belt malfunction, we had to wait in line for a long time without any information. Once we were able to check our bags, my husband's bag was declined. We had to wait in another line before finally getting the go ahead to go to customs. For the amount of money I paid, I thought a snack would have been provided.
