I asked a handful of questions here in advance of a long weekend trip to South-east Wales at the beginning of March, and just realized I never reported back.
This forum is so useful I want to make sure I pay it forward!
Day 0 - Thursday March 2
I was traveling with my friend J and this was our experimental "can we travel together" trip? Travel compatibility is hard to judge beforehand!
We flew WOW from Boston - Reykjavik - Bristol. This was my first time on WOW, and unless I'm flying with a friend who needs to keep costs really low, this will be my last time on WOW. There was nothing wrong with the experience, I just prefer to upgrade to the next class up (economy comfort/plus/whatever) and this is not available on WOW. And they really do extract every penny they can out of you. You have to pay for everything, including water on board. Not a big deal as long as you know in advance and are prepared for it, but I like a little more in the way of services built into my ticket price. We paid for a larger carry-on, and had to stand in line for almost 45 minutes to check the size of our carry-ons because 1) almost everyone had to rearrange stuff to get their bag to fit or had to rearrange things because they had to check their bag and the WOW staff didn't start working with the next person in line until the frantically-rearranging-person was done and 2) they didn't start the bag checking process until boarding started. I find IcelandAir to also engage in some inefficient processes that irritate me tho they not actually a problem and the inefficiencies were magnified on WOW. The plane, staff, etc were just fine though.
