Cons: "Small seat crammed with my neighbor"
Pros: "The speed of getting in and taking off was fast. Free blanket and pillow. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "I dont recall the plane but all i can say is that three people to a row is to much for the plane i was in."
Cons: "Bad entertainment, almost no new movies. No meal or drinks on international flight, food for purchased was not as advertised."
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: "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: "Counter personal were efficient and helpful Nice airplane Good entertainment system Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "Food choices were very limited"
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."
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: "The seats were very comfortable and I loved that the entertainment was free."
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: "Great layover destination. Very comfortable aircraft as far as the flight and seats. Good price."
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. Food choices modest."
Pros: "Overall this was a good flight! I'd recommend Iceland Air for budget flying and just bring a few snacks."
Cons: "I'd honestly rather there be no food than gross airplane food so no real complaints. I appreciate the price!"
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."
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"
Pros: "We boarded on time and the plane was clean."
Cons: "We were told we had to check our carry on, which they said was too big, yet others with much larger didn't. The flight attendants were not friendly and we were past up numerous times when they were seeing & collection trash. Half way to our destination two of the three bathrooms were no longer functioning."
Cons: "They lost my bag. No food and no boarding system."
Pros: "they generally have good free entertainment options. The crew is always friendly"
Cons: "The flight had two legs and both were delayed. The first, granted, was out of Icelandair control because the president was flying into SeaTac. However there were a lot of delays in Reykjavik. First it took a long time for the bus to reach the waiting area where there were no seats for people to sit. Then the flight itself was delayed because they were waiting for another plane with connecting passengers from New York. There was a lot of sitting on the tarmac and we were delayed getting to our final destination. This is also the first transatlantic flight I have taken with any Airline where there was not at least one complimentary meal on board. Apparently they are reserving that now only for economy Comfort class and up."
Pros: "They gave a complimentary meal to my child immediately after take-off."
Cons: "Lost my luggage-- no customer service to recover my luggage. No reimbursement for days without luggage. The flight was insanely hot. It was simply not worth saving a hundred or two hundred bucks to fly this airline and I've never felt that way about a flight."
Pros: "free movies"
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."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seat, and it's always a bummer to have to pay for food on a long international flight"
Pros: "The crew was great! Very efficient & helpful."
Cons: "I had a difficult time sleeping because the seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg room and the flight was smooth and pleasant."
Pros: "The staff were extremely nice and helpful as I was traveling with bridal dress and the suit of the groom, and, seating in economy class, I was worried about stuffing these items in the overhead compartment. The airline staff helped me store these items in a closet without hesitation; and even checked back in with me upon landing to ensure that I wouldn't forget them while exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "Seat has very little cushion, it didn't take long for my lower back and butt to start hurting. A more comfortable seat would go a long way towards helping one forget they are on a transatlantic flight."
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"
Pros: "I like the price and the opportunity to do a stop over in Iceland. Generally crew was nice going into the plane and leaving the plane."
Cons: "Plane was outdated and older with USB ports not working. The crew had forgotten about drinks I asked for several times. I was disappointed that the fight didn't offer free booze and food like other airlines. The crew made me feel like I was bothering them. The crew and passengers were inconsiderate and would constantly slam my arm while walking in the isle way. It was annoying from passengers, but unbelievable from the crew. I got no sleep and it was infuriating. Worse flights I have experienced, may have been better if I had a window seat."
Pros: "Friendly attendants Personal tv"
Cons: "Small seats Food service is extra $"
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable, roomy. Smooth flight, on-time. Great seat-back touch-screen entertainment with multiple movies, tv series, etc. Smooth take off & landing, easy flight, cheerful crew."
Cons: "Seven-hour flight without one free snack - not even pretzels??? Also, we barely made our mid-journey connection to Paris at the Iceland airport due to very, very long lines at which our passports were stamped. No way to advance to front of line if connection time was super short, so it seems the airline should not book connections that are under one hour at airport."
Cons: "The change in Keflavik was unnecessarily confused and lacked clarity."
Pros: "Check in and boarding experience were erfect."
Cons: "Seats throughout majority of aircraft (I.e., Economy section) are flattened from overuse, so they are hard and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable for long flight ."
Pros: "Luggage made all the very short connections, which has never been the case with other airlines such as BA, Air Nez Zealand, Delta and AA."
Cons: "pay for food"
Pros: "Smaller plane than most international flights I have taken. I felt that the air quality was better and now a day later I do not feel like my body is buzzing. Maybe it is because of less radiation on the plane? I don't know but overall I feel it was healthier."
Cons: "The seats are a little hard. I sat on my blanket and that made it better."
Pros: "Great short flights to get from the USA to Europe."
Cons: "Moved to an exit row, but were not told that there are no USB charging ports in that row."
Pros: "Super pleasant flight.. I would definitely fly again. Only issue was I wish there had been some free pretzels maybe. :)"
