Cons: "the delay starting in DC, followed by more delay on the tarmac in Reykjavik, and followed by long waiting for the bus to get paasengers to the airplane in Reykjavik"
Pros: "Unlike most American airlines that charge for getting on the plane first, Icelandair has a sane boarding from back of the plane to the front."
Cons: "I fly quite a bit, especially overseas, and this was the first time there has been no food service and a charge for any food at all. Entertainment system has fewer choices than any other airline I've flown."
Cons: "Didnt even offer coffee or juice in the morning"
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."
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 overnight flight from the states to Iceland was really nice and the airline provided pillows/blankets. The stopover in Iceland was easy to navigate in the smaller airport."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "Have no complaints at all"
Pros: "Exit row seating was comfortable with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Delayed flight with no communication from boarding gate. Knew about delay from Kayak hours before we heard about it at the airport."

Cons: "Did not realize that free meals were not provided. The trip ended without eating for 9 hours, as no hot meals were offered."

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"
Cons: "The seats on our plane were the worst seats of my experience EVER. When you have to be seated for 5+ hours, some level of comfort is required. I could barely stand by the time we got to Iceland. NEVER again. I'm not usually picky but this was ridiculous"
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly people Check in was very easy When flight was delayed they held. The plane for us"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "No food on either flight. First flight was 20 minutes late, which made our one-hour layover very stressful. We asked the Icelandair woman at the gate if our bags made it even though our layover was short and she seemed annoyed by the question, and said "Yes. All the time." Our bags did not make it, and it took an hour and a half after waiting for our nonexistent bags for 30 minutes to report them as missing, as there were two employees in the office for 30 people whose bags didn't make it."
Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "The ac was bit working in our section and multiple toilets were malfunctioning."
Pros: "Inexpensive, efficient crew."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is doubling in size. They have increased the number of travelers into the airport before the infrastructure is ready! Consequently the lines and wait times for connecting travelers at passport control is unbearable! I guess this is the price we pay for low cost flights!"
Pros: "Schedule and cost"
Cons: "Well I guess you get what you paid for. Worst seats and comfort I've ever experienced flying."
Cons: "No food on a 5 Hours flight. Entertainment was very poor. Long flight delays made me waste most of my first day in London"
Cons: "I was delayed 9 hours due to a strike, including a 7 hour layover with no offer of compensation or assistance."
Pros: "The seating and cree."
Cons: "Unexpected reassignment of confirmed seats, and then reinstating the originally confirmed seats during boarding. This was very annoying at the least. Reykjavik airport was very cold. Did not appear they were running any heat. Landing and boarding from the turmack was not pleasant."
Pros: "Air traffic controllers strike was explained to us beforehand"
Pros: "Nice flight crew, seats more comfortable than I expected, in-flight entertainment system included music, movies, promotional videos...but make sure you bring your own headphones! They have some for purchase, though."
Cons: "Other than the 2 free checked bags, pretty much everything else costs extra. I didn't try any food or drinks, so I can't comment on them."
Cons: "my seat selection was changed while boarding. Was placed in front row next to door. Lots of leg room but also lots of cold air coming in from door...was freezing the whole time despite blankets"
Pros: "Excellent service, very friendly staff, more leg room even in economy, great bang for your buck. Wish all airlines were more like Iceland Air."
Cons: "Thought really hard about this question... Nothing negative, really."
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: "A surprising amount of legroom! The flight was incredibly well managed. We were well taken care of and everything was prompt and efficient."
Cons: "The gate at Keflavik had nowhere to sit. I prefer some sort of included food, but all of it requires payment--even little snacks."
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: "Great Crew, entertainment, service and comfort. Nice that you provide USB plugs for charging devices."
Cons: "Paying for food. However the process of using debit card to pay for it was easy, but just not use to paying for food on a transatlantic flight."
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."
Cons: "More water please! I"
Cons: "No food included on almost 6-hours flight"
