Wow vs Iceland air

Trying to decide which to take from west coast of US to Iceland,depart either Seattle or San Fran.

Wondering if others might have taken either of these airlines or both and what they thought?.Wow is almost $200 cheaper but takes an hour longer from SF

Check out the free baggage that Icelandair allows compared to WOW, That may influence your decision. WOW is a budget carrier and EVERYTHING on the flight you pay for,

Following on from reply 1, make sure to compare like with like. A friend recently flew ORD-KEF-MAN on Icelandair and because his travel agent hadn't booked the ticket class that included a meal, he had no food on an evening 7-hour flight. And he hadn't eaten at the airport, being unaware.

Is Wow still $200 less after including everything you want that comes at an additional charge?

You can buy food onboard Icelandair, so no need to go hungry if you did not book a meal.

I would choose Icelandair if you want to check bags, their allowance is huge and free.

" WOW air" is considered a " No Frills " airline

were as " Icelandic air " is more a legacy airline.

check ratings via T A or Skytrax.
