Iceland Air - Flight from London to New York via Iceland

Hi,

I am flying to New York (JFK) from London Heathrow, via Reykjavik (1 hour lay over). Has anyone completed this connecting journey before? I don't really know what to expect and am slightly nervous about catching the connecting flight in Iceland. We are flying in February 2015.

Any advice / guidance would be amazing.

Icelandair exists for such connections - they'll get you and your luggage onto the next flight.

BUT why not stay a wee while and take a longer connection?

Maybe it's already booked

Bit late to be worrying then.

I've done Sanford to Glasgow via Iceland (and the same in reverse).

Was a decent enough flight - had no problems at all.

The flight to the States was better, as we had a longer connection time and the flight ticket included a trip for a swim in the Blue Lagoon - ideal way to refresh before a long flight.

Not a problem. I just flew from Seattle to Zurich with a 35 minute layover. The customs agent told me that they would hold my flight if needed. No need.
