    Wow indeed. Though I think I’d just go as far as Reykjavik; great city in a fantastic country.

    Terrific race, the Icelanders….

    Quick search. To fly to New York in December adds up to over €700 return. Aer Lingus is €450 return.

    What’s the appeal of Wow?

      Agreed, I wouldn’t even have it in my top ten Kate Bush singles….*

      * yes of COURSE I have a list

    what are the advertising regulations regarding these supposed fares? are they required to have set % of seats available at advertised fare? my hit rate on ryanair 10euro and below fares still nil after 10 years…..

    Yup, check out the cost of hand baggage, checked baggage, choosing your seat etc. Then add in 4 or 5 hours in Reykjavik and you’re probably better off just going direct with a carrier from Ireland.

      One good thing is they allow you a free extended stopover, so you can stay in Reykjavik for a few days before getting your connecting flight. But yeah, it doesn’t always work out much cheaper.

    Just looked at one, 300 euro return with 1.5 hours in Reykjavik. Sure stopping for a day might be a nice idea.

    Be careful not always cheaper considering:

    1. Not direct
    2. Loss of visa waiver
    3. Baggage is an extra 100 return
    4. Planes – not sure if they’re smaller…free meals etc.

      There’s no effect on the ESTA visa waiver. You might not have immigration and customs pre-clearance in Iceland, but the ESTA is unaffected.
