Absinthe_Fairy goes to Iceland... Review with images

AdvantagesEfficient flight with no huge issues, reasonably priced

DisadvantagesMinor niggles with website, food and headphones not free

"...mean I can't really give Icelandair 5 stars, but I can happily give them 4 and I do recommend them. I have rated 'Satisfactory' for Food Quality and 'Ok' for how well the airline caters for the disabled, as I have no experience of either so can't really comment. ..." Read review

A Frosty Service Review with images

AdvantagesQuick and efficient check-in and disembarkment.

DisadvantagesBig class division. Cramped elbow and leg space. The food!!

"...to Reykjavik (reviews to follow), Icelandair was the natural choice of airlines. A choice based on the airline's catchphrase from their advert "Icelandair connects Iceland to Europe". We flew from Manchester to Keflavik Airport where there are twice weekly flights. Other UK airports serviced by Icelandair are London Heathrow (daily flights) and Glasgow (also twice weekly). Icelandair flies from the UK not only to Iceland but also onwards to New ..." Read review

A good airline if you're visiting Iceland

AdvantagesYou get a movie for only a 3 hour flight, on-demand entertainment if lucky

DisadvantagesFood isn't great, no online checkin

"...forms since 1937. The name Icelandair has been in use since 1973. Their home airport is Keflavik airport in southwest Iceland, about 40 minutes from Reykjavik. A lot of people fly with Icelandair if they are flying to the US, as they offer one of the cheapest business class options to cross the Atlantic. That arrangement involves changing planes (or a stopover) in Iceland. Their business class product isn't quite up to the same standard as most ..." Read review

Cheap and useful flights to the middle of nowhere

AdvantagesCheap, many destinations (inc. smaller destinations like Rhode Island)

DisadvantagesTwo drinks at once may suit some, but not me!

"...Baltimore, I chose to fly Icelandair for several reasons. I'd been recommended their flights by my boss who has made the trip on several occasions, and when I enquired about fares, this one was the cheapest. Not being one to quibble with price, I settled on Icelandair. My flight was a two-leg affair (oo-er?), firstly Glasgow to Keflavik, Iceland, and then Keflavik to Baltimore/Washington International and I'd chosen a return flight. On checking ..." Read review

"...my first flight with Icelandair. Icelandair fly from Glasgow and Heathrow to Halifax, Minneapolis, New York JFK, Baltimore/Washington BWI, Boston and Orlando, via their "hub" at Reykjavik. From Scotland, this offers significant time savings. Normally Glasgow passengers have to fly to London or Amsterdam, and then fly back over Scotland, over Iceland then down to America. A lot of wasted time which Icelandair save. They operate a fleet of Boeing ..." Read review

Shocking punctuality

AdvantagesDirect flight from Scotland

DisadvantagesAppears to be plagued by delays.

"...to and from Iceland with Icelandair - on the outward flight departure was delayed by 5hours, while the return flight was delayed by 4hours. These delays resulted in arriving in Iceland just after 2am, and arriving back in Glasgow at 1230am - much less convenient that the scheduled arrival times, and quite disruptive to the first day of our holiday. The usual 'technical faults' catch-all was given as the excuse on both occasions, but speaking to other ..." Read review

An airline with delays and poor customer service

AdvantagesRelaxed luugage allowance, cheap fares

DisadvantagesDelays, poor service

"...traveller, my first experience with Icelandair was not particularly pleasing. I travelled from Boston to Manchester with a flight connection in Rekjavik. Prior to departure, I had been concerned with the fight connection as I had only 1 hour 30 minutes in between the two flight arriving into Rekjavik and leaving for Manchester. There was no information on the Icelandair website regarding flight connections and therefore I contacted Icelandair customer ..." Read review
