Pros: Reserved seats apart in exit row for extra legroom. When online checkin opened 24hrs before departure, found we had been moved. Moved us back during online checkin. Arrived at airport to find we had been moved again, but check in agent was very understanding and placed us in equivalent seats.

Cons: I understand that seats reserved are not guaranteed, but to be moved twice by the airline was a negative, though it was made up for by the action of the understanding check in agent.

Pros: Crew was friendly, food was pretty good and I like that when they made announcements we could hear them. With some airlines the crew mumbles and one can’t hear a thing. So thank you for speaking loudly and clearly. Also, the seats were actually pretty comfortable.

Cons: The shuttleling between terminals at the airport is Iceland is a bit unorganized and the wait is long; or at least seems that way when a person is jet lagged.

Good 7.6

Pros: Crew was great. Loved having the layflat seat instead of regular Saga seat. It’s a leased plane due to the grounding of the 737-max so we got layflat seats instead of WI-FI (which is way better in my opinion)

Cons: O M G! It was about 150F while we were waiting to take off and for some reason, business class doesn’t have overhead vents. I had rivulets of sweat dripping down my face and almost felt woozy. The plane was also a bit worn and dirty compared to the last time I flew Icelandair in 2016.

Cons: Air France is not a low fare airlines, I had to pay 225 USD against 3 luggages which is not acceptable. We should have the right for one luggage per ticket as all other airlines. If I knew this will happen, I wouldn’t use Air France and this will be the last time I buy a ticket on Air France

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Only use this airline if you are just flying to Iceland or taking advantage of their stopover in Iceland option. Otherwise choose another airline.

Cons: Serve food like most transatlantic carriers-bringing Subway Sandwiches or paying large fees for Pringle’s potato chips is beyond greedy for an airline these days. If Icelandair is that desperate for profit it makes one wonder where else they cut corners.

AMS
KEF
Okay 5.6

Pros: Checkin counter was very helpful. Crew during the flight was polite and helpful even under the circumstances of having to deal with another airline's plane due to the MAX difficulties. The in flight entertainment is ok but hopefully they can get more current and a larger selection of movies.

Cons: Boarding at the gate was unorganized even if the crew thinks it is ok. They call by rows but the attendants don't check and therefore the queue becomes a clump of people. The food offered either pre-ordered or bought on board leaves a lot to be desired.

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.
