Good quality. Fairly reliable. They have pride in what they do. A good option especially if you need a one-way flight between Europe and North America. Plus, if you can work in a couple day stopover in Iceland it is a good bonus.

A quality airline. Worth stopping at Reykjavik! They have a deal for up to 7 days stopover with no extra cost on your ticket.

Hi

We flew London to Reykjavik with them this April. They were OK. No food or drink or headphones. If you want to bring your own headphones they were a usb fitting.

"is it worth booking a day to see the city??" - You can do a lot there in a day. It is a small place and seeing a little is better than seeing none. Too bad you can't squeeze a day or two more.

Have flown twice on Icelandair in the last year, first round trip just to Reykjavik in economy. As an earlier poster mentioned an OK, standard economy flight. The second flight this April to LHR was in their version of economy plus. Food same as that you could have bought in economy but seats more spacious, maybe because on those flights it seemed as though they were business-class seats. A big advantage was being able to access the lounges in SEA, KEV and LHR.

Yes to Icelandair, yes to a day in Reykjavik - but two would be better. The airline likes to book stopover pax into the Hotel Loftleiðir - a nice hotel - but it's not well situated for sightseeing. Book somewhere more central and enjoy a brief look at a fab country.

Agree, absolutely. Of course, more days in Reykjavik would be good - but one is better than nothing! And the airline is fine - I wouldn't hesitate to fly Icelandair again.

I've flown Icelandair a lot. It is a good airline. No free meals on board and a limited menu for paid food, so plan in advance. Good on board entertainment, I've always had seatback TVs. Definitely plan a one day stopover in Reykjavik if you can, the city is tiny and easy to see in a day. Choose a hotel that is in the city center to make the most of your time. It is also easy to book excursions into the countryside. Icelandic butter and skyr ( a thick yogurt) are delicious and Icelandic lamb is as well. There is an old hot dog stand in the center of Reykjavik that has been there for years, the hot dogs are topped with fried onion bits and a special sauce, delish and cheap!
