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,
I've flow WOW and would fly them again.
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.
@ bogwoppit they didn't bring enough on board, apparently.
