Miinukset: "My first flight was so delayed that I missed my second and had to stay in Reykjavik overnight. I didn’t make it back to Denver when I was supposed to."
Plussat: "Crew were pleasant but with such cramped seating, no food, and no sceen working this is definitely a budget flight."
Miinukset: "Schedule seems to mean there is always a shortage of time to make connections."
Plussat: "Canadian Airlines and Airports could learn from the business model of IslandAir."
Plussat: "The crew and cabin was nice."
Miinukset: "Bag drop off. I arrived 3 hours before the flight. Could not check in until a little over two hour before the flight. Two customers groups had never flown before and held-up the line for over 40 mins. The counter Agents had no idea there was a line of people wanting to drop off their bags."
Plussat: "crew was fine; Helsinki airport is nice"
Miinukset: "boarding was disorganized and late -- with little communication. They didn't even make a boarding announcement, so there was a lot of unnecessary lining up, waiting, and nervousness -- then they did not help people make their connections after they got in late, again, making much nervous jostling."
Plussat: "I was able to get from Iceland to Toronto, so essentially they were able to fly the plane."
Miinukset: "I have been flying many different airlines for many years and have a decade plus of travel experience, so this negative review is something I’ve hardly ever done as some background. We left over an hour late to start off with. They took 1.5 hours to offload our luggage. Avoid at all costs."
Plussat: "Early arrival"
Miinukset: "Long walk in Toronto airport to leave"
Plussat: "Free entertainment, free checked bag."
Miinukset: "Chairs are too firm and uncomfortable for a long flight."
Plussat: "No wait time"
Miinukset: "More space"
Plussat: "the time went really fast"
Miinukset: "somewhere on the itinerary clearly that food is not included in the ticket"
Plussat: "Same as other comment"
Miinukset: "Same as other comment"
Plussat: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, good cabin climate, good selection of movies to watch. Although there was a delay in boarding, we did still leave on time."
Miinukset: "Slow, delayed boarding, with bus to the plane and stair walk up."
Plussat: "Flight was good"
Plussat: "a surprise after not taking that airline for over 54 years, very happy with plane, seating, and bought food. excellent connections to US from Iceland and little layover time."
Miinukset: "It would be nice to have a small hot meal on the longer flights."
Miinukset: "We flew out of Newark (EWR), and the flight gate was NOT posted on any of the flight departure boards, there was no Icelandair counter to ask for that information (staff had left, as we arrived there shortly after 1 hour prior to departure, so there was no longer even a sign saying Icelandair on it), there were no Icelandair staff or crew to ask, and each and every airport personnel we asked (such as visitor information and security) either did not know or gave us incorrect information. The gate information was not given on our boarding passes, and even Google did not know the gate number! Although we should have had plenty of time, we ended up having to cut through the security line to make it, and even then we came fairly close to missing the flight. I would be very reluctant to ever use Icelandair again, even though I did like the price for the cost of the flight and the flight itself was fine."
Miinukset: "Plane was at full capacity and at least an hour prior to landing flushing of toilets was no longer possible due to tanks being full. It was a 3 hour flight! Not acceptable!"
Plussat: "You’re going for no frills. Competitive pricing maybe but consider baggage situation first. We went transatlantic and paid for a bag using economy light fare to make it work. Only needed one checked bag. Kids even in economy light get a free meal. Cabin is ok."
Miinukset: "Witnessed many customers checking in who thought a bag was included. Entertainment is ok but screens have limited kid activities. Each leg of my flight took off 15-20 min late easily. Overall this wasn’t bad as it was made up in-air. Except one layover was only an hour, And cut it a bit close clearing passport control and traveling with two kids. No time to even see Kaflavik or pick up food or drinks. We ran to the final boarding call after clearing passport control. Also not good was that they don’t offer gate check on strollers. On a departure, you can use your stroller all the way up to the gate, but you get it back with any checked baggage at baggage claim, so you won’t have a stroller for layovers in Keflavík or clearing customs on either end. That was a pain."
Plussat: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Miinukset: "We were placed on another flight for whatever reason and were not given seats together. Not too big of a deal, just would have been nice to sit together since we booked 6 months prior to the flight."
Plussat: "cabin crew was friendly and helpful"
Miinukset: "no food service"
Plussat: "cleanliness and attitude of the crew were aweomse"
Miinukset: "video screen should include games to pass the time"
Miinukset: "In Iceland the gates to board are so close together it was jam packed with caos no one knew which line was for what gate... just hoped you were in right line for the gate you had to transfer from"
Miinukset: "food and drink is a nickel and diam which doesn’t go with the brand."
Plussat: "Crew very nice, food delicious and nutritious"
Plussat: "The staff is very friendly on board and the overall flight was very pleasant."
Miinukset: "Boarding in Reykjavik was slow and very congested."
Plussat: "Leg room and service. Entertainment system is excellent!"
Miinukset: "I liked it all"
Miinukset: "Having to pay for food when it's only sandwiches and snacks. Boarding crowded, should be by rows."
Miinukset: "They wouldn't help with rescheduling or refunding. They said they could charge me over twice what the ticket cost to change it. Not helpful or sympathetic at all. Sometimes it's nice to be human with human emotions."
Plussat: "the crew on Icelandair is wonderful. A nice precursor to Nordic manners! The plan ride was fine. The entertainment options were very good-TV, movies, music."
Miinukset: "Everything was fine...flying is not my favorite experience."
Plussat: "Efficent crew and flight on time"
Miinukset: "It's my understanding that Iceland Air has WOW! airlines as their budget entry. However, Iceland Air has no free food/snacks for a flight that is 6 hours long. So what more do they take away from the customer for the WOW flights? They should at least offer snacks on a flight/airline that is not advertised or priced as a budget flight"
Plussat: "I liked the fought attendants they were very friendly and willing to help."
Miinukset: "The plan was small for a 3 in a half hour flight. On top of that there was not even as much as a snack given and everything on the menu was way over priced. Just think it is in human to have people in the air taped that long and force them to pay extra on top of ticket price to have a snack. Very disappointed if i can help it i will not fly with them again. This is the 3 straight year i have so seems like we are being forced to go with them to get a decent flight price."
Miinukset: "The airport was too small for the number of flights going through. It was just a mass..."
Plussat: "The bigger more comfortable seats on this flight were so nice. The complimentary beverage and food was nice also."
Miinukset: "Boarding from the tarmack and having to carry our bags up many stairs to get on the plane! Not so nice when you are an elderly person."
Plussat: "Legroom is quite good"
Miinukset: "Baggage drop-off badly indicated (or was not available?) in Reykjavik, so we had to wait a long line with people who did not do their check-in at the automated counters. Not efficient at all."
Plussat: "Friendly service in Saga class, good food"
Miinukset: "This is a low cost airline, so don't expect much. Saga class which is sold as business is nowhere close to business class. The seats are the same as first class on domestic US airlines and recline only a little. The airport in Iceland is horrible, completely congested, expect long lines, no priority lanes, missing your flight and nobody cares. I will not be flying this airline again."
Plussat: "Air Canada found a spot for us, great flight and service."
Plussat: "Crew was kind and accommodating. Boarding was quick and organized. Great amount of leg room."
Miinukset: "Very disappointed that no food was served during the 5 hour flight from Reykjavik to Toronto. We had to pay 8 euro for a less than pleasant sandwich! Having to pay for food (even a snack!) was very surprising considering the length of the flight and that other airlines give out at least a small sandwich. I had a two hour connection flight with another airline and they offered a sandwich and granola bar, so for a 5 hour flight I assumed we would receive at least something small- nope!"
Plussat: "Crew service"
Miinukset: "Flight delays"
Plussat: "smooth check in, boarding"
Miinukset: "Some complimentary snacks would be appreciated."
Miinukset: "Stood in line at check-in for almost an hour. No free food nor snacks for an international flight. Movie selection is minimal and outdated. Beverage service was also limited."
Plussat: "The entertainment system was current and had great selection. I liked that they gave you a water upon boarding."
Miinukset: "KEF is not equipped for their sudden volume in the airport: seating, food service, line formation, departure formations. All are a mess. There were literally 500 people in line for four different flights in the same corridor departing in a 15 minute window. Plus riding a bus where the doctor was slamming the breaks while squeezing out of a tight spot, with passengers almost falling. Unacceptable. We were like cattle."
Plussat: "Greenland. Always get a window seat. Fantastic."
Miinukset: "I had to run from my incoming flight to the gate because they were "boarding". But they held us in a waiting room and then loaded on a bus in the rain (just above zero temp). There we stood on the bus for 25 minutes with no explanation of the delay. Finally out to the plane where we had to line up in the rain and blistering winds to get on the plane. Ruined my leather jacket."
Plussat: "Fast service onboard. so many flight attendants!!"
Miinukset: "Some menu items weren't carried on this flight. Oh yeah - as I peep at reviews below - Reykjavik airport is super chaotic around departure gates. Probably wasn't built to accommodate the masses and endless international connections. The backlog of travelers is likely caused by another carrier who is known for delayed departures and arrivals."
Plussat: "The plane was not crowded so it made for a more comfortable flight. Attendants were friendly."
Miinukset: "Have to pay for everything but water, juice, coffee and tea."
Miinukset: "I understand that businesses must expand, and that is no different with the Keflavik airport. In routing passengers through the airport, there were listings for Canada/UK, and US/All Passengers. It was unclear whether this signage was meant for "flights" or "passport." It was actually for "flights" meaning, if you are taking a flight to Canada, use this line; for US flights, use that line. However, many people, myself included, mistakenly assumed that the signage was meant for passports, in other words, US passport holders use this line; Canada/UK passport holders, use that line."
Plussat: "Saga club was clean and fairly good."
Miinukset: "Inflight food was not good. Business class leg room was kind of tight"
Plussat: "Leg room in sardine class is good for someone 5'4"."
Miinukset: "The boarding makes no sense. If you let people board from 2 ends of your plane, you should at least tell rows 1-20 to go to that door and 21- 35 go to the other. Since that's not done, mayhem ensues. The whole no free food thing is ridiculous but I will either fly a different airline (Lufthansa) or bring my own food. Also the entertainment is what you see on TV in the USA, there are no new movies AND the content is the same east and West bound."
Plussat: "They were on time."
Miinukset: "I had booked seats early and they had changed them so that my husband and I were not sitting together."
Plussat: "For economy section seats were relatively comfortable and had decent leg room. Also kids meals were free and prices for food drinks reasonable"
Miinukset: "Boarding and transfers were a little chaotic"
Plussat: "professional and efficient"
Miinukset: "no food"
