A good sale for nonstop service to Iceland. From Boston / Baltimore, WOW sometimes has this for under $300, but they don’t include any checked bags or advanced seat assignment—Icelandair include both at no extra cost. That would cost at least an additional $100 roundtrip with WOW. While you can avoid WOW’s fees, you would need to travel extremely light since they only allow 11lbs for carry on.
The timing of the Icelandair flights are also a little better, it lands in Reykjavik at about 7AM vs 4:30AM. Prices are:
- New York [NYC] – $399
- Boston [BOS] – $399
- Washington D.C. [IAD] – $399
- Chicago [ORD] – $447
We think this is a better deal for most because there are very little additional fees to worry about.
