Book cheap flights to Iceland (Round-trip)
Pros: That I got to visit a place as mystical as Iceland for such a low and affordable flight. My departure flight with Iceland Air was on time and although the return was a bit tardy the company did an excellent job with being transparent.
Cons: The flight crew could have been a bit more polite
Pros: Getting off the flights! What a terrible experience. We will never fly or recommend this airline again
Cons: We will not fly Icelandic Air again. The baggage fees were incredible - $95 per bag to go from Boston and $110 per bag to fly home. That is over $400 in bag fees. This with practically no service, no snacks - we did get water and soft drinks and a ground crew in Iceland that does not communicate about boarding. There was no system to get people on the plane and no communication You expect a baggage fee but it should be well communicated. We looked up the fee online and saw an economy bag listed. What they do not list is that there are different economy baggage fees. The lower price you pay the higher the fee. Again I don't mind a fee - I just should be able to find that fee before I commit. Very deceptive advertising. I could have booked a flight with an airline for the same price and gotten better service, a few snack and airline miles.
Pros: They were very good about keeping the lights down as much as possible on this red eye flight. Announcements were also kept to a minimum. The re were comfy blankets, pillows, and water waiting for us on every seat.
Cons: The seats are not that comfortable - seems they skimped on padding, plus my seat wouldn’t stay reclined and my husbands wouldn’t recline at all. The space under the seats in front of us was very restricted: there is only space for a bag or for feet, not both.
Pros: Had a good experience with Icelandair. Price was great and that made it worth bringing my own food. Staff was nice.
Cons: The only thing I could have used more of is fuids. They provided a small water when boarding, and a complimentary drink soon thereafter. But nothing the rest of the flight.
Pros: The seats were comfortable and spacious enough. Also, the entertainment system was really responsive, which is a little thing, but makes it feel nicer and modern. It also had good selection.
Cons: Being a rescheduled flight after a big storm, security seemed overwhelmed with the number of people. We arrive about two hours before scheduled departure and they were making last call by the time we got there. Not sure what can be done about this, but it was annoying. Maybe the airline could have requested that security open earlier.
Cons: Tried to reschedule flight just a few days later because of a friend's wedding. It would have cost more in fees to reschedule the flight than it cost in the first place, and THEN I would have had to pay for an entirely new flight. JustFly was absolutely awful to work with and showed neither remorse nor compassion.
Book cheap flights to Iceland (One-way)
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: I needed to cancel my trip due to a work event being postponed. I tried to reach IcelandAir to do this as I needed proof of cancelled flights so I could submit to my trip cancellation insurance to get ticket price refunded. I tried contacting IcelandAir for well over 3 weeks, calling (sometimes on hold for hours before finally being cut off), numerous emails (that went unanswered), messaging on FB, I even opened a Twitter account to try to reach them through there- NOTHING! The flight was supposed to be taken last night- I received a FB message this MORNING apologizing for the delay, and informing me I needed to contact another party- I'm beyond blown away at the lack of professionalism and inability to answer a simple request, which was to cancel my flights BEFORE they were scheduled to depart.
