Im gonna copy my last post from the last thread for WOW Air. In italics below, general information as well as a response to the haters.

I get the hate, but seriously if you go into a budget airline expecting these things to happen, like being charged for water, then you cant be disappointed.

Wowair is the best experience I ever had on a flight. Yes Water is $2 or $3 but its more expensive inside the airport. You can also fill up your water once inside the cabin from the planes water system.

My wife and I flew roundtrip for $740 TOTAL including 1 carry On and 1 checked bag and reserved seats from LAX to Iceland.

Dont think it can get much better than that.

Pro Tip: Go with a group of friends to make the trip even less expensive. We rented an Apartment for 8 people for 9 nights in Downtown Reykjavic, ended up being like $90 for our stay per person.

I would fill your water bottle up at a filtered water dispenser in the airport. avoid the "tap" water on planes

i remembered reading this and thinking what a great insight. thanks.

honestly, if you can accept restrictions and be flexible with dates, you can travel the world. this topic was covered in the podcast of 4/11/18 (whole foods one).

Flew Wow super cheap from London to Dallas. Hands down worst airline! Flight was changed and then delayed twice and then arrived late. Seats suck. Staff was rude. Can't get in touch with anyone on the phone. Even at this price it's not worth it.

You've never traveled on a plane in Asia. You're lucky if the plane pressurizes. Wtf do you want for $250???? You as a human cannot economically travel on your own, without carriers like this, you would never leave your hometown.

The Kev Master was reading this yesterday so a word of caution on budget airlines. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tr...521587002/

His friend was flying to London yesterday on Norwegian, she had to wait for 3 days for a flight as the plane she was supposed to board was first delayed for weather then under repair.

I just flew from Newark to Reykjavik for a long weekend on WOW. The planes are new and the flight attendants were very friendly. I found it to be a major step up from Spirit, which I have to use to go from AC to Orlando.

This is a steal of a deal and Iceland is beautiful.

I believe the experiences would be different each time. I didnt have a great experience but it wasnt so bad. I paid $450 RT from SFO to SXF (Germany). I took Friday off, started flying Thursday night. Flight first went to Canada and then reached Reykjavik and it was delayed by a couple of hour. So I missed my connecting flight and ended up staying in Iceland on Friday. The airlines covered the hotel cost and gave us coupon for food.

At first I was pissed because I was visiting Germany for the weekend. (Yes, weekend. Life happens and I could only manage to take a day off at work.) So my 3 day vacation became a 2 day vacation. But I made friends at the hotel, we ended up going to Blue Lagoon that night. had a lot of fun. And this unexpectedly made my vacation awesome!

The flight tends to be long when there are delays, there isnt enough information provided as well. It does make for a frustrating experience. But the flight attendants are nice and friendly. They gave us free snacks and water because of the delay.

Anyways, if you consider wow airlines, be prepared for delays. As long as you accept that your flight might get delayed and/or cancelled, you wont be disappointed.

Great deal. Thanks OP. Only catch is for this besides the airline, is that the aurora borealis season is November-April so this is "off-season" for that sight.. IF that is the purpose of the trip. Otherwise I'm sure it's a beautiful country.

Good tip! I wish there were 2019 dates, since I've blown through most of my PTO for this year!
