Hello--I'm considering flying (a second time) with Icelandair from NY to London this coming spring. My first experience was a bit on the stressful side (as is, I suppose, all air travel--something I'm learning).
I had no trouble on the way over, as my stopover in Keflavik was "cancelled" b/c of codesharing (ended up going nonstop via United). At Keflavik upon return, however, the flight was late by about an hour. They did hold our flight to the US for us, but the airport was complete chaos. No one seemed to know which gate our flight was leaving from, it was super-crowded, and I had no idea whether I had enough time to run to the restroom before the flight boarded, much less where the bathrooms were.
So, I did a little Googling and I see the airport has been expanded to include a new building (I only remember one in '16) and the map on the airport site includes estimates as to how long it takes to reach the bathrooms.
The flight prices are very very tempting right now. I did want to go nonstop, but as I said, this price is good, and I'm having trouble finding nonstops going from EWR to LGW anyway.
Not sure whether to hold out for that Golden Airfare Deal that may never happen. I'm on a few mailing lists and so far, nothing has jumped out at me.
What say you about your recent experience? Thanks!
