Pros: "The onboarding process was awesome! The rest was mediocre at best. The cabin was friendly but not helpful. They had weird policies which we have never heard or seen elswhere. The flight had huge screens that won't turn off, it was freezing cold and the crew had no idea how to help."
Cons: "More knowledgeable crew and maybe more crew members, as there were too few and the service took more than 2 hours to complete. Never seen that happen on a 7 hour flight."
Cons: "Boarding and boarding pass was horrible. 30 min before boarding, there was no one at the SAS area."
Pros: "It was the first time I needed to use "Passenger Assistance" and it made my experience excellent. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Thank you."
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
Pros: "The food was great and the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment selection was limited and there were no live channels - just prerecorded content"
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Pros: "Leg room, bottle of water waiting at seat, as well as pillow and blanket. Large number of entertainment choices."
Cons: "Only one free drink per meal, otherwise only tea or coffee."
Cons: "Was overlooked by the pursor a couple times - he probably had a lot on his plate. Also, the "snack" at the end of the trip was sorely lacking! Especially for a 7 hour flight. The bathrooms were gross & out of toilet paper. And it seemed like one was locked constantly...?"
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. Nice comfort and smooth flight, arriving slightly before the time"
Cons: "Check-in was a disaster. Took almost one hour for a trainee to check us in. Printed 8 bag tickets (for 2 bags) and after we complained was told there was no line at immigration, so should be okay. Guess having a 3 year old wasn’t enough for us to get any compassion or expedited service. At gate. No early boarding for children."
Cons: "Communication about international COVID requirements before the day of departure."
Pros: "Easy flight, and boarded in the front and back of the plane. Made it easier and faster to get on."
Cons: "They aren’t too clear in baggage charges. I got standard fare, but still had to pay for my checked bag for both ways."
Pros: "Everything, very nice crew . Just gave you the feeling you were in good hands . Would highly recommend Iceland air."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful and the flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "Having purchased our 2 tickets together at one time months before the flight, it was very upsetting that we were placed in two different rows away from each other for a longer, international flight."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Flights were on time and crew was courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Planes were rented. Pilots not as familiar with plane; planes interior deteriorating; seats too narrow; three men in a row (could be easily fixed) had too broad of shoulders to fit comfortably; under seat storage dividers offset so not clear feet nor luggage space; both planes smelled terrible;"
Pros: "Plenty of room, good entertainment"
Cons: "Some kind of complementary dinner, madness there’s no food on a long haul"
Pros: "Crew is great. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "You have to pan ahead because there’s no meal or even snack service, and items available for purchase on board are quite limited."
Cons: "Old equipment as Maxes had to be replaced. Very limited luggage space in cabin. Little leg room and airline making a bundle off passengers with carry-ons that were over weight and charging to put under plane. Maybe not an issue if they had the Boeing Max up and running."
Pros: "The crew was excellent- courteous and helpful. The outgoing flight was good, but the return flight was quite a disaster. Boarding was disorganized and had to stand for a very long time. Seats were very narrow, and did NOT reline. The seatback entertainment and usb power did NOT work in our section."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure in KEF. Our plane felt like a third-world aircraft with non-working equipment, VERY tight non-reclining seats. A cracker would have been nice on a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "When I booked my Economy Light fare from Denver to Paris, I was expecting a trying experience. But to the contrary, I found the entire trip to Paris and back enjoyable. I found the boarding quick and efficient, plus the flight attendants were genuinely friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Short answer: Nothing. Icelandair is my new favorite low-cost airline for trips to Europe."
I don’t know how international flights can’t have media screens to keep people entertained for the long flight. Ugh.
Typical experience for budget airline. Boarding from KEF required bus transit from the gate to plane, so if you had "priority boarding" it was useless as it was simply a free-for-all when getting off the bus. But still no issues with getting our luggage into overhead bin so not really a problem.
Was very apprehensive about flying Play, but the flight was fine. Nothing special, nothing horrible. Fair price to get from New York to Iceland.
I wasn’t able to check in online the day before or the day of because their web configuration or business model idk. I arrived an hour early and check was closed and there was no one around to speak to and eventually was told there was no possible way to get a digital ticket despite I had no luggage to check and would have easily made it through security to boarding and had to pay for a new ticket for $330 ontop of the $169 I spend for the ticket and then I missed my rental car for $305 because I only arrived at midnight instead of noon that I was originally intended. All booked through kayak. I hope there is some kind of insurance from kayak because this was totally preventable had I not been blocked by play air from getting my check in and plane ticket.
The staff was very professional, the places very clean. The legroom was a little bit tight but so worth the price of the flight. Very pleased! Next time, I want to book a stayover to explore Iceland :)
The boarding process was easy, the crew was friendly and the flight was very smooth. There is a limited menu the food was tasty, but you have to purchase everything. The cost of the flight was very reasonable but everything such as baggage is extra.
Play is a great budget airline. There are no TVs or chargers in the seat but there was more legroom than expected. Boarding and all staff that I interacted with were great. You have to pay for any and all drinks or snacks you might want on flight.

Blood sucker budgeted airline. Charging after and after. No one should busy air ticket in this airline. Completely a scam and sucking blood.
The cabin crew very kindly arranged a change of seats for us due to a distressed passenger
