Here are the facts of my flight.
October 5th 2011:
- Departure Gardermoen International Airport - Oslo, 2.45 PM - arrival Keflavik International - Reykjavik, 3 PM (-2 hours)
- Departure Keflavik International Airport - Reykjavik 4 PM - arrival Logan International Airport - Boston 5.35 PM (-4 hours)
- Departure Logan International Airport - Boston, 9.45 PM - Arrival Keflavik International Airport - Reykjavik 6.30 AM (+4 hours + 1 day)
- Departure Keflavik International Airport - Reykjavik 7.30 AM - Arrival Gardermoen International Airport - Oslo 11.30 AM (+2 hours)
Take-off time approximately on all flights time.
So much better than last year, when staff appeared cool and distant flight crew on board, partly unwilling to inform us on delays at Boston Airport and transfer. The hospitality on board was professional and we felt very much welcome by the staff.
We were seated at seats from row 20 and up. We generally had to wait a unnecessarily long time to get served, and on our way over we were the last to be served and they had run out of all what we wanted. This is certainly one point to be improved by the air carrier.
Only soft drinks and water complementary. Wine, beer, hard liquor and a small selection of warm dishes for sale on board at reasonable prices. Even head sets were not offered travelers for free.
One of the few assets of an Icelandair flight. Generous room in front of knees on all flights. Seats comfortably wide. Good sized table.
