Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very reasonable cost, on time, clean plane and courteous service"
Cons: "Desk agent asked if we were willing to sit in exit row. We agreed. Seat assignment turned out to be next row forward so we were unable to recline for a 5 hour red-eye."
Pros: "Great flight all around! Can't wait to explore!"
Pros: "Size, prices, flight attendants."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I never got to go. I'm very upset about this."
Cons: "No snacks"
Cons: "5 hours of flight in narrow sits and only a small drink cup offered. No complementary food."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Worst seat on the plane - very back row - seat wouldn't recline - toilet kept flushing all through the flight. No free headphones. No meal."
Pros: "Good entertainment options and device charging."
Cons: "No meal. One drink."
Pros: "Staff on plane."
Cons: "Hardest and narrowest seats I've ever experienced. No complementary food served on transatlantic flight and the food offered for sale was unappealing and expensive. There was a problem with staff meeting the arriving plane to open the door and allow passengers to disembark. The wait was 15 minutes for someone to show up on each leg of the trip."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. Also our flight from DC arrived late, the connecting flight waited."
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive (which was to be expected as we arrived late), but it did not arrive 24 hours later either. No food was served, not even a small snack. Boarding was slow and it was hard to hear the announcements. (Maybe this is an airport issue)."
Pros: "I only liked the water and the food choices."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, I could see spilled and stuck food where I was sitting. From the seat belt to the tray table and under the plane window. Maybe a child had many accidents there but they failed to clean it up. Somehow they also managed to leave my luggage in Iceland making the rest of my trip a nightmare."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and efficient. Made sense to do it from the rear of the plane forward, by rows. Flight attnendants courteous and very helpful. Pillow/blanket/multiple non-alcoholic beverage services. Limited but adequate movie/tv selection. I watched all the Icelandair Iceland travel specials instead--highly recommend. We were delayed 20 mins leaving as the incoming flight was late but we made up the time in the air. Minimal/unobtrusive cockpit announcements. Very nice red eye flight."
Pros: "I was the first one off the plane"
Cons: "The emergency door was in front of my seat. I couldn't sit without my knees hitting it or at an angle which is uncomfortable. I asked the flight attendants if I could I've and they said "no it's a different class". I paid for a seat on your airline and all I wanted was that seat but was given something Waltham was not what I paid for. Also, I had to hold my water bottle and book bc there was no seat back pocket. It was a miserable flight. Especially since the gentleman on the other side of the plane in front of the emerge door was able to move to one of the seats that, "was a different class". I guess just a different class for me??"
Pros: "Arrived safe."
Cons: "Technical problems kept us at gate for 3 hours."
Cons: "Late arrival almost missed train."
Cons: "I was surprised that we did not get a meal service, not even a little snack for a long hall, from D.C. to Iceland. The only service we had was the water. I probably won't fly with this airline again....Sorry."
Cons: "Did not like the fact that a 400 pound man took up hall my seat along with his."

Pros: "I liked being greeted at the door with a bottle of Iceland water. The flight attendants were very professional and helpful."
Cons: "No meal on the flight."
Pros: "Flight was cheapest option for a family of 6. We had mechanical issues prior to leaving DC and missed our connecting flight. Icelandair did a great job in putting us in a hotel and providing free transportation to and from the airport. Reykjavik is a beautiful city and we made the best of the layover. We plan to come back to Iceland for a longer visit to explore more."
Cons: "Next time I would plan for a stop over-- it seemed to run so smoothly that it must of happened often. We lost a day in Paris due to the delay which we were disappointed in and they did nothing for our lost hotel day that was paid for."
Cons: "It was delayed causing me to miss my connection"
Pros: "They set us up with free hotel in Reykavik, but that's about it."
Cons: "Where to start? They were delayed 3 hours leaving DC because of technical issues and kept promising us they would hold our connecting flight to Zurich. That of course didn't happen, so we proceeded to have to wait in a line at their service desk for 2.5 hours just so they could rebook us for the next day. We lost a day of our vacation due to Iceland Air incompetence"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and the boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were stiff and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was good"

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly people Check in was very easy When flight was delayed they held. The plane for us"
Pros: "The exit row window seat near the door had significantly less leg room."
Cons: "Couldn't preorder a meal so had to bring food or buy theirs on a 7 hour flight."

Pros: "Very friendly flight crew Free water was appreciated"
Cons: "The headphone jack on my seat was partially broken, so I only got audio on one side."
Pros: "The boarding was done well, with those in the back of the plane boarding first, which cut down on crowding and people standing in the aisles! The lights in the cabin were designed to look like the Northern Lights, which was beautiful, relaxing and made me even more excited to be going to Iceland."
Cons: "There were very few entertainment options (not many movies, music, or television shows) and the screen was not user friendly."
Pros: "The food was good and reasonable. I paid more at the airport and it sandwich was so dry I left half of it uneaten. I had the "spicy chicken" sandwich which is not hot spicy, but very tasty. And the "happy wedding "cake and a soda. Very happy with most things. I came by wheel chair, but was able to walk to the plane. Maybe there was a misunderstanding, but I did have to stand awhile at the front of the plane before being allowed to sit. Trip went well. We had a fair amount of turbulence, but it was announced. and handled very well."

The plane boarded quickly and efficiently on time and the staff seemed friendly and responsive. Both of my checked bags made it to my destination even after a plane change."

Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
Pros: "The staff"

Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Cons: "So many delays, no real info provided. When we had to stay overnight they didn’t mention it would take 4 hours to get our bags which actually never came. Airline industry sucks and deltas one of the worst."

Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic.

After all that at the boarding gate they announced that they will call by zone .they called especial need called frequent flyers zone A never called zone B all they said last minute was this is the final call for flight #.... and I was right in front of them and guess who were the people making the announcement yep the same people at the check in counter"
