Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Pros: "The total experience from check-in to disembark was extraordinary. The crew were beyond eager to please and extremely responsive. The food was hot and very tasted. The beverage selection was finominal. The cleanliness of the plane and restrooms, although the handle for one of the restrooms fell off the door."

Cons: "Flight delayed and we sat on tarmac for 2 hours"

Pros: "I liked that it was available for me to return to Amsterdam in such late notice. Got there quickly and even earlier (10 mins) then expected."
Cons: "No on offered me anything to drink or a snack the entire flight or even a hand towel but others in front and behind me were receiving them. I didnt even feel acknowledged during the flight. Even though the tine was good, the price was way too high but since I was desperate I paid it."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Hottest I have ever been in a plane (we were in 40G and H) and I “run cold”. We were sweating and drinking water like crazy (they gave us one bottle and did not routinely walk the aisles handing out more). Luckily we brought our own water. Early June and headed to Scandinavia, not someplace hot. Seats were hard and I put my unused blankets under me."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, luggage came out quickly."
Cons: "No entertainment, only coffee and tea served."
Pros: "Movie selection, warm buns,"
Cons: "no thing to report"
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster. Took almost one hour for a trainee to check us in. Printed 8 bag tickets (for 2 bags) and after we complained was told there was no line at immigration, so should be okay. Guess having a 3 year old wasn’t enough for us to get any compassion or expedited service. At gate. No early boarding for children."
Cons: "Internet page for buying excess baggage was difficult to understand."
Cons: "The crew was terrible very rude and terrible customer service skills."
Pros: "I liked that boarding and take off went smoothly. The cabin crew was extremely nice and always was there when you need something!"
Cons: "There was no snack served."
Pros: "No entertainment. Food not part of basic deal. But was both no problem for me because it was a short flight. On both points I rather would say: N/A"
Cons: "Chairs were narrow and not so comfy."
Pros: "I purchased Plus and found it a good value. My seat on the overseas leg was comfortable -- though it could have reclined better. The food & drink service was conducted as at an elegant restaurant."
Cons: "gate change at the last minute across whole airport, and I am in a wheelchair so it was very challenging. people at airport not accommodating, kind or friendly"
Pros: "I liked that we landed."
Cons: "Why can't SAS ever be on time? The last 4-5 flights I've been on have connected me either too late or just barely in time for connecting flights. Please be more like Swiss."
Cons: "The agent at the gate misled me into thinking there would be no fee associated with a checked bag. When it turned out there was, I was told it was too late."
Pros: "Ok friendly"
Pros: "I mean, it was how a flight should be, painless."
Pros: "Two 20-something young ladies tried to figure out system, individual issues while rest of us stood and watched versus passing through loading area. In addition, delayed due to short handed baggage loading crew. Flight was one hour late departing. Luggage did not make connecting flight to London. No wifi either."
Cons: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Friendly service, good movies. Easy flight, arrived early."
Cons: "Being served two versions of a ham and cheese wrap in a row. Variety would have been nice."
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Scandinavian Airlines was good to work with in person to fix issues."
Cons: "This was a connecting flight that was swapped to go to Newark instead of DC due to unforeseeable delays in DC. Not bad in and of itself but they only gave me a few hours notice that my flight was changed (email sent at 1 AM on a 7 AM flight) and I lost my already paid for upgrade to premium economy. They couldn't find any record of me having purchased an upgrade when I went to check in on my 5+ hour flight."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
Cons: "I understood I could check one bag. Nope. Checking one bag cost me $67. So much for saving money."
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."
Pros: "My flight was more pleasant from Stockholm to Chicago because I was able to purchase an upgrade to Plus."
Cons: "There wasn't free food but free coffee."
Pros: "So far best flight I've ever experienced ! I was traveling to Europe and both ways I was pleasantly surprised, planes were on time , super nice crew and great food , Way to go SAS !!!"
Pros: "The food was quite good on the international trip. Thought the pilots were excellent on all flights. Take offs and landings were very smooth."
Cons: "On the domestic flight you only got a drink."
Pros: "The extra leg room I paid for."
Cons: "The cost to change my flight"
Pros: "tjis flight was on United Airlines. It was nice and simple"
Cons: "the landinf was ROUGH and The plane was very grimy"
Cons: "Baggager fees were high"
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"
Cons: "Seats are bit dence. It would have been nice to get a complimentary soft drink, even it's a short flight"
Cons: "Over crowded boarding area - delay at departure"
Pros: "Entertainment facilities was user friendly, but program too few."
Cons: "Bad management system, luggage even lost in transfer to Stockholm, also SAS but operated by Air China ( transferred in Beijing, from Taipei.)"
Cons: "That it was cancelled"
Pros: "Love the fact that the plane was clean and new!"
Cons: "Wish we had more movies and more tv-shows,"
Pros: "Best of class service + great cabin. I sat in coach but it felt like business class on other airlines (which makes me wonder what business class is like on SAS! ). Highly recommended."
Pros: "Thanks to COVID, minimal service"
Cons: "A cup of tea about $7.00. Can it be better. Certainly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed once we had boarded, so we had to sit at the gate for about 2 hours, which was not the crew's fault of course, however, they could have offered drinks. Once we finally got in the air, they only offered purchasable snacks in a way that was confusing--and did not even come through the cabin with complimentary drinks. Given the circumstances, and the fact the time in our seats was extended by over two hours, there could have been some better service from the actual flight attendants. It should have been clearly stated at the beginning of the flight, and once more when we were in the air, that no complimentary drinks were going to be handed out, and if we wanted anything, we would need to purchase it. I wouldn't have minded purchasing if I had known that was my only option."
Cons: "No USB charging point working and I had purchased on board wifi"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."
Pros: "Out of my four flights with Aer LIngus, this leg of my trip that both left and arrived on time. It is sad, that when landing they had to say thank you for flying another on time Aer LIngus flight. Makes me wonder how often are you not on time? My experience says 75% of the time your late."
Cons: "First off, don't try charging me 150 euros to check my bags when I already paid for it at booking. Then who charges for 2,50 for a can soda on an air plane? Lastly, I'm 6'4" and the seats were so close there was no way to sit without my knees pressed into the seat in front of me."
Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a free drink and snack on the short flight. We would have taken some with us on the plane if we would have known that we had to pay for everything. Just something we have never experienced on any international trip before"
Cons: "The airline charged for luggage at airport check in."
Cons: "Late - again!"
Cons: "Aer lingus uses double prong headphones which dates the whole experience earphones are uncomfortable and volume is bad. You have to pay for booze in economy for international flight, seats aren’t that comfortable but the selection of movies and tv is good. I will probably look elsewhere next time"
Pros: "Hostess were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat in first row and my bag half way down the plane so although I could’ve been first off I was in actual effect the very last."
Pros: "Great equipment. Decent entertainment, sparsely filled cabin. Seat change to isle request before boarding readily made with no fuss. I noticed that passengers could actually make out pa announcements both at PDX and in flight. Doesn’t bother me anymore when I can’t but can be very concerning to anyone who rarely flies. Never understood going to the trouble of making announcements both pre-boarding & on-board pre-flight, that no one can even make out. That was not an issue here."
Cons: "Better lumbar support is always appreciated, adjustable lumbar would be very nice and could make or break an entire flight. No seat on any flight should ever be even the slightest ill repaired. Again, this equipmemt all seemed great. Lastly, since I prefer to always have a water, coke or coffe and or snack in front of me during entire flight, a bit of self serve (grab a water, coffee or snack yourself without having to make staff work a simple task would be nice on every flight. The flight from SEA-DUB was basically great and equipment is always of the utmost importantance."
Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "I went to the restroom in the back, and one of the flight attendants was sitting in her jump seat, with head phone on and appeared to be sleeping or resting with eyes closed. Her sprawling legs were blocking the aisle, therefore I could not get to the restroom on the other aisle that was the only one open at that time This is unacceptable. Also PA is way too loud."
Cons: "No TV on board and you had to pay for a glass of water"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 6 hours due to a mechanical problem. For 6 hours the passengers were told little or nothing & were eventually given a voucher for $10 to redeem on plane. Mechanical problems can of course occur,but how the airline,Aer Lingus,dealt with this was appalling."
Pros: "Like that we can check a bag and get free meal in economy on transatlantic flights. Good staff and nice plane."
Cons: "Add water coffee tea gratis on short haul inter-Europe flights."
Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay up, kept sliding back seat27a."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Spacey seats and plenty of bathrooms."
Cons: "The food wasn't great and I wish they would have picked up the dinner trays way sooner"
Pros: "My mother uses a wheelchair and the service for her was outstanding"
Pros: "NO SECURITY CHECK FOR INBOUND FLIGHTS. What a relief!"
Cons: "Cramped rickety stairs, up & down to Passport control. In flight service non-existent. Tepid coffee at absurd $4.50!"
Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "After attempting to check in at the baggage machine, we were told we had to go through the check in line. Then after waiting 60 minutes in line at the Aer Lingus counter we were told we were 15 minutes past the boarding closing time. So even though we were still an hour before our flight we couldn't get a boarding pass to get on the plane. We then had to pay $150 x 3 to get on the same flight the next day. We will never fly Aer Lingus again and will never fly through Dublin again."
Pros: "The plane was clean and comfortable, the crew was friendly"
Cons: "Having to pay for coffee and soda is something I would expect from a budget airline and not a major carrier"
Pros: "Plane was half full."
Cons: "Food was terrible, and if you’re white and your significant other is black you may have to request things for her because she won’t get them even when she asks"
Pros: "Food was excellent and drinks came along frequently"
Cons: "Staff wasn't rude but not friendly."
Pros: "The leg room was smaller some of the other airlines. The seat was so uncomfortable to sit on for the flight."
Cons: "Airplane was late 90 mins"
Pros: "Friendly and practical no complaints"
Pros: "Timeliness of flight and service on board."
Cons: "We upgraded 7 travelers for priority boarding. However as we got through check in, 2 of us were told we had to check our carry on. Mind you our carry on was the same size (exact same suitcase) as 2 others in our party who did not have to check in their bags? "Priority Boarding is now only €4.99. Be the first on board to store your cabin bag and relax in your seat before take-off." I believe I am entitled to a refund based on the info on above taken directly from the Aer Lingus website."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful."
Cons: "We were delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to a storm at AMS. Then delayed further in AMS waiting for a gate. Not the airlines fault though. They are one of the few major European airlines that don't serve free food."
Pros: "Flight delayed 2 hrs - missed connection, small seats/aisles."
Cons: "Crew was nice."
Pros: "Excellent service and courteous staff"
Cons: "I didn't like they charge for all drinks including water on a 2hour flight"
Cons: "this flight was unnecessarily delayed. it was possible to have an earlier connection"
Pros: "Service on biz class."
Cons: "Too many boarding / customs lines in Dublin. They dumped all of my toiletries that I had carried across Europe."
Pros: "The plane was clean and seemed new enough. The flight crew were all pleasant."
Cons: "Leg room is atrocious. Food is sub par even fornairline food. The drink cart should be brought around more than once. My entertainment centre was off or in disrepair for large portions Of the flight, and the plug on tomcharge the phone was not only in a difficult place down. Wtween seats but was not functioning. I paid for an internet connection I couldn't use be aide of a dead phone."
Pros: "Baggage claim assistant Peter in Dublin was very helpful"
Cons: "I asked the person checking and tagging the bags in Budapest to make sure they came off in Dublin for 24 ht overnight layover - I told him twice and he nodded agreement and then tagged them WRONG!!!!"
Cons: "I made my reservations for British Airways and the flight was by Aer Lingus."
Pros: "The cabin was quite comfortable and we had all we needed from the get go, ear plug, TV, blanket, and pillow. We had good seating as there were only 2 seats on each wing. Even tough we couldn't reserve our seats, these were good."
Cons: "Why do those long distance air hostesses treat us as if we were a nuisance? Not a smile, rude; they had decided that those going to the US had to be bad people. Are they that political or just bad mannered????"
Cons: "Guy at check in was rude and insulting and my bag didn't arrive."
Pros: "Speed of boarding from both the gate crew and the cabin staff. At that hour of the morning the last thing you want is hassle when boarding."
Cons: "It's a very very early morning flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane was great compared to Ryan air"
Cons: "I don't like that I must travel to Dublin from cork to fly to Amsterdam for a cheaper flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed 40 mins because Aer Lingus was unable to meet departure time and Air Traffic Control couldn't fit them into the departing flights rotation outside of their originally scheduled time. As a result, the airplane was stuck at the gate for 30 minutes. The rest we spent taxiing to what seemes the furthest end of the airport. The airplane hadn't been cleaned in a while as was evident by extremely sticky and smelly tray tables in our row."
Cons: "Aer Lingus personnel were incompetent and inefficient. Most were more interested in chatting with coworkers than actually assisting customers. Seats had not been assigned despite my previous assurance from EA customer service folks, and special meal requests for my wife and child had not been added to our booking record. Calling Aer Lingus almost always requires you to hold 30 minutes before anyone answers. Again, I suspect they are just as disinterested in helping customers as the ground personnel."
Pros: "The crew seemed genuinely happy. They were fast and accommodating. The food was good and they kept the cabin dark so those that wanted to sleep could. Food service was timely and on point. We had 1 full meal and 1 snack. The snacks were, strangely, quite good."
Cons: "The entertainment was hard to hear. I think it is due to the old style 2-jack headphones. I suspect that the supplied headphones aren't the highest quality (they are free, for everyone, why would they be?). I forgot my adapter so I couldn't use my own headphones... oh well."
Pros: "Seats are fairly comfortable in coach and the blanket and pillow help."
Cons: "Aer Lingus is definitely a budget carrier and alcoholic beverages are not complementary in coach. Not a big problem, but it is a downside to the overall experience. Definitely not the level of service I expect on BA and not as good as on the AA flight to Glasgow."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to Business class that we submitted a bid for -- it was the difference between heaven and the usual too small, too squashed intercontinental experience. The whole experience post-upgrade was top notch, from the service to the food. Thanks, Are Lingus!"
Cons: "The air conditioning was too cold. I had to put on lots of layers of clothes and I was still cold."
Pros: "Price is lower than other airlines. Cabin crew service is usually good."
Cons: "If you have a seat at the front of the economy class cabin you have to go all the way aft to get to the toilets and galley, but at some point in the flight I was barred by a cabin crew member and told to go up front through the first class cabin. It would have been nice to know that option was available or required."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were very tiny and did not recline at all. This was the most uncomfortable 767 that I have ever flown!"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, more roomy plane than first flight from Toronto"
Pros: "Larger plane with more room"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, no rows called; no one at the help desk."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to an unexplained "maintenance issue." A friend of mine who had paid extra to get an exit row with extra leg room was inexplicably moved to a normal seat, and was only upgraded when she complained. I was moved from a window seat to an exit row without explanation, unfortunately, this was an exit row where a life raft was attached to the door, leaving me even less leg room than a normal seat would have."
Cons: "Not even a bag of peanuts on a 8 hour flight? That's a little silly when I got a snack on a 45 minute flight earlier."
Pros: "All the Icelandair staff from Seattle to Frankfurt represent their airline well, thank you! Stop having Kayak sell your tickets"
Cons: "All the extra charges for anything other Seat on the plane. I don't blame Icelandair for this, I blame Kayak for it. Kayak really suck at informing customers about the services offered by Icelandair, I would have bought a better ticket if I was given all the info to make a informed decision"
Pros: "The attendants were nice and the plane was clean. I arrived safely."
Cons: "I haven't flown for over a decade. The general flight was fine, but to my dismay I discovered that the airlines had squeezed an extra seat into each row. They should be ashamed of themselves. We are not animals and airplanes are not cattle cars. At least they didn't used to be. ☹"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable flight as there was a box under the seat in front of seat 26E so I could not get comfortable and I’m only 5’7”. As it’s in the middle of the plane they we were the last row to be served"
Pros: "We had exit row seats that had more room in the front."
Cons: "1) While there is more room in the front, there is less room in the width because the trays are built into the armrests instead of in the seat in the front. Because of that, the armrests take more space below and remain static, while the normal armrests can be lifted up and have nothing below the armrest. 2) The text describing the "deal" for the exit row, which costs more, said that the seats have limited recline compared to normal seats. The fact is that the window seat did not recline at all. The button stayed pushed in all the way and the seat would not move at all. We do not know whether it was broken or intentionally disabled. 3) The attendant's approach was somewhat dismissive at first, but on the good side, she quickly rectified and came through with offers and a more understanding attitude, she was nice. 4) We brought this up to the flight attendants' attention, but the best they could do was to give us 1 free headset and any food we wanted. This was not much since we did not want the food. A refund for that extra payment for that seat would have been a better move. 5) The middle seat (it's a row of 3), has a metal box hanging from the front seat, taking a bit more than half the width of the space, so you can only put your feet under the right side of the front seat. 6) I don't think we'll do exit rows again on Icelandair. We did it before on other airlines with good results. 7) Not sure how the prices compare per mile with other airlines really, but on Icelandair, if you get the "Economy Standard", you really don't get much, no peanuts or snacks, no food, only soft drinks, no video games, only movies and music, and you have to bring your own headset or buy one, along with that the better classes of service run out quickly (I booked maybe 6 months ahead) and are rather spendy in comparison with standard."
Cons: "I was charged for baggage FLYUS confirmation did not clearly explain about the charge before I booked the flight. Not good!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating!"
Cons: "You had to purchase food for the 7 hour flight I had from Seattle to Reykjavík. I was hoping for a complimentary meal since it was a long flight."
Pros: "Meh, it's cheap"
Cons: "Their planes have old jank interiors with weird layouts, and stern, unhelpful flight attendants. They don't bring water by much but they're more than happy to hock duty free BS"
Cons: "Iceland Air did not pick up our baggage from the transfer area in Seattle. Ultimately spent three days in Paris without our luggage. Poor communication from Iceland Air regarding the whereabouts of our baggage. Bad experience!!!"
Cons: "We were an hour late with no update Food service took a long time No water given out at check in People in front put their seats back the entire ride and swished is. Should be a rule to keep seats upright"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was very impressive. Very good customer service after our bags were delayed by the plane sliding off the runway. They were super accommodating of my travel plans and delivered my bags to me three hours away from the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants were extremely rude. They also were very conflicting with their directions for the exit row seats. One attendant would situate you and your belongings and then the next would come and make you move everything and this happened more than once before taking off. The attendants were also giving away seats that people had tickets for and forcing a lot of people to move seats more than once. They also would not take trash more than the one time about an hour after the drinks service, so slow drinkers were forced to keep all their trash for the entire flight and ending up leaving it in the seats because no one is going to take their trash off the plane with them when they had asked the flight attendants to take it during the flight and were refused. Also for a 7 hour flight, at least offering pretzels would be polite. The plane slid off the runway upon arrival and then we had to wait 2 hours for a ground crew to come with stairs and a bus to unload us. Communication to the customers was extremely poor during this time, we had almost no idea what was happening, and with where our bags were, we waited in the airport for an hour before they announced that they wouldn’t be unloading our bags for another few hours."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "There is only a serve of drink, headset need to pay"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The airline didn't serve any food. I'm a female at 5'7" and the leg room was a little tight"
Cons: "The flight to Reykjavik from Seattle did not have available WiFi. This wasn’t terrible, but I could not communicate with anyone I needed to until the almost 8 hour flight was over in Reykjavik."
Cons: "Bad on everything"
Cons: "It was very cold in the cabin."
Pros: "Free Hot drink, Headrest entertainment"
Cons: "No peanuts...I dont really care"
Pros: "I was transferred to a direct British Airways flight to Heathrow that arrived in a time-frame that was close to when I would have arrived there on the Icelandair service. The transfer (including check-in luggage) was completed rapidly with minimal inconvenience which was appreciated"
Cons: "The scheduled Icelandair flight was cancelled at late notice because the aircraft was unavailable. I defective part could not be delivered and fitted in time for the aircraft to be available at Sea-Tac airport."
Pros: "The flight went exactly to plan. The cabin crew was very friendly and the seats were comfortable. I like the transfer in Iceland, because it allows you to stretch your legs on the long haul from the West Coast to Europe, and generally only adds about an hour to the total flight time."
Pros: "I'm a European tour and booked a flight from Reykjavik to Amsterdam, I received an email to make an offer to upgrade and I quickly jumped at the chance. I received an email 2 days prior to departure that my offer was excepted and I would be upgraded to economy comfort. Economy comfort is between First Classe and economy and the cool thing about it is that you get treated as if he had a first class ticket. I had access to the lounge which was amazing, the spread out was wonderful he sat in the choices plentiful. Reykjavik is a small airport therefore it's a busy airport, what do you economy comfort I was able to use the saga class lane and I checked in less than five minutes whereas the regular lane was backed up. I was able to board along with first-class passengers and the lane was short which I love. Overall it was a great experience and Icelandair will make you a trip even better if you fly with them first class or economy comfort. I highly recommend them and I am definitely flying with them again."
Cons: "The breakfast menu was limited but since I had the economy comfort upgrade,it was free so I can't really complain since I had the economy comfort upgrade."
Pros: "Nice inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Plane boarded too late, missed connecting flight, left the baggage unattended downstairs without alerting owners of the bags, had to recheck bags and go through customs and security AGAIN and I am now waiting for 8 hours to board another 1-stop plane"
Cons: "In the last week I have flown Iceland Air three times. The airline was a not efficient and caused me to sit in two different airports for over 16 hours and cost me to miss a day of vacation and extra expenses to accomidate them. This has been a disaster only because of this airline. Next time I plan on using British airways, the flight I took with them was amazing and effortless on my part"
Pros: "Seat is comfortable , nice blanket"
Cons: "Super old movie, no food include"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating, new flight was booked immediately after being cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, missing our 10+ layover in Iceland and trip to the blue lagoon. We missed arriving to Amsterdam for our friends birthday and ended up getting there the next day. The most dissappointing and quite frankly ridiculous part was that after being on hold for 2 hours Iceland air refused to upgrade our seats to first class after such a huge inconvenience. We boarded the plane and the entire first class portion of the flight empty!! This makes zero sense to me. Iceland air should seriously reconsider their upgrade policies. They would rather have first class be empty than make their customers happy! We were even willing to pay extra."
Pros: "For an economy flight it was pretty good. The aircraft was safe and clean. The crew was very attentive and courteous. The food offered was not more than a snack at fairly reasonable cost. I would recommend eating before the trip. The departure was right on time and our arrival was a little early. Our luggage was handled properly and arrived on time with our follow-on flight to Paris."
Cons: "For the price paid,, i really don't have anything against the trip."
Pros: "Picture on screens was clear. Sound was good."
Cons: "Seats were just regular. For the cost I expected to be able to recline or at least be much more comfortable. It seemed more like a comfort seat upgrade. Boarding at Keflavik is a poorly organized mess."
Pros: "My seat was actually not too uncomfortable. I had travelled on Iceland air a few years ago and thought the seats were pretty tight and uncomfortable. This was better."
Cons: "Minimal beverages. Must bring your own snacks as they are only for purchase."
Pros: "The blankets were nice and long."
Cons: "I called in several days in advance to reserve a seat next to my brother. When I got to the airport they said that I didn't even have a seat. The airline stewardess kept running into me without acknowledging that she did, even though I wasn't in the aisle. This happened three or four times. I tried to ask her to stop and she didn't seem to hear me. The sound for my seat's audio entertainment system didn't work. It didn't work for my brother who was sitting next to me. They did not serve complimentary snacks or a meal for a 7.5 hour flight that started at 4:30pm."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, and a very smooth ride. They had a lot of movies for in flight entertainment as well- I recommend the Iceland air documentaries!"
Cons: "No free in flight food, however there were lovely options to purchase!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There was no way to reserve seats for the flight. I made our reservations eight months in advance and there was no way via kayak or Icelandair to choose seats. When we tried calling the airline, they told us we needed to call back 36 hours before the flight. When we called 36 hours before the flight they told us all of the seats were alr day taken and we needed to speak to the agent when we checked in. When we were given seat assignments at checkin and asked why we'd had no input into the seat selection, they said we should have called in advance. It was really frustrating, especially because we ended up in th back of the plane. I was in a middle seat, winch don't have any space for a bag under the seats in front of them. Then there were no meals served on the overnight flight. I bought a small salad for 12 euros. I have never in my life taken an overnight flight where they don't serve at least dinner, if not both dinner and breakfast. The flight was on time and the attendants were friendly, but I wasn't terribly impressed otherwise."
Cons: "I could not mov, the legroom was nonexistent, heavy people in front of me."
Cons: "No sign for business/economy at gate."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Could not select seats when booking 3 months out. Could only do this 24hr in advance. No app to checking/select seats. Had to be on computer. 7 hours and no food for free? Had to buy a $9 roll with some ham and cheese slapped on. Only came by with drink/water 2 times in 7 hours."
Pros: "On time and a smooth flight."
Cons: "No free food, not even peanuts, on a seven hour transatlantic flight. Never been on that cheep an airline befor, and the airfare was not that inexpensive. Will do more checking around next time."
Cons: "We didn't actually make the flight due to a fiasco with our shuttle company. We called the third-party company to assist with changing flights and, after 40 minutes on hold, JustFly.com said there was nothing they could do and that we needed to contact IcelandAir. After another 60 minutes on hold IcelandAir said there was nothing they could do except rebook us on a new ticket. $2000 later we finally got to go on our honeymoon. Long story short we had to buy all new tickets. JustFly.com only refunded $200 of our original ticket cost after assessing numerous cancellation fees (over $700 in cancel fees). We won't be booming JustFly again. Happy Honeymoon to us, once we finally got there."
Pros: "The plane was new which meant new entertainment system and seats."
Cons: "It took over 30 minutes for our luggage to arrive on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "I enjoyhed the entertainment on the flight. Great movies and tv selections."
Cons: "It was the first international flight I've ever been on where no meals were included in the price, so it was a disappointment that we were not given any complimentary meals or snacks, especially for such a long flight through dinner time."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour layover due to missing our connection."
Pros: "Free stopover in Iceland"
Cons: "Food choirs were meager Crew member stood in aisle chatting withe one row of passengers for over an hour during an overnight flight when most passengers were trying to sleep Bag went astray...showed up 12 hours later"
Cons: "Plane time delayed 30 minutes and on top of that once they opened the gate there were still long waits and a shuttle that needed to be taken to plane. Plane was boarded and took off later than expected and landed at final destination later than expected. Overall, both flights included, it was a very painful first experience using iceland air."
Cons: "Our suitcases got lost"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Cons: "Short lay over. 1 hour. Bag did not make it. Poor entertainment system. No current films. Audio poor. Airport in Iceland has awkward arrival with long lines up one staircase to passport control."
Cons: "Armrest that can't go up when with a child"
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been friendlier and more helpful. They seemed a bit standoffish, like they couldn't be bothered, so I felt scared to ask for anything or any help."
Pros: "For economy class the leg room was actually decent."
Cons: "On every other international flight I have flown on meals and drinks are included. Kind of ridiculous you paid for these things individually on the flight b"
