Unpleasant as a Cold Shower

This was the worst flight I have even been on in terms of comfort and service.

Not only that, it wasn't exactly the cheapest flight and the meals and the drinks were not included. It annoyed me the whole trip. There was just a cup of soda during the 1st flight from Paris - Iceland and then a coffee on the Iceland -New-York flight . Shameful! Not to mention the outdated movie selection that had only 2 language choices and no subtitles. Needles to say, French was not one of the possible choices. To top it all off, when I returned to France I was missing a suitcase.

I didn't need any more reasons not to travel with Icelandair.

It was a poor choice on my part. I got home on Thursday, and I received my suitcase at my house on Monday morning, , so I can finally and happily move on.

We traveled with American Airlines (at the bottom of our tickets it said British Airways, they must have a partnership) from CDG to JFK. Boarding and takeoff were on time. On the whole the staff was pleasant. The on-board entertainment was limited to several common screens with so-so movies.
The meals they served were good.

The cabin was a little old but what bothered me the most was the space available! When you have a flight that's 8 hours and 30 minutes you expect a minimum of comfort and I was very disappointed. We were very tightly packed and had very little legroom. The flight seemed endless to me. Otherwise the rest of it seemed OK overall.

An airline to avoid completely

This is a horrible that should be avoided completely. It would be much better to pay a little more than travel with them.

Comfort, quality and service: zero.
Very small seats, straight backs, no curtains next to the toilets, unpleasant staff and an inedible meal if there is a meal. They didn't serve one.

But let's say that that's the price to pay for a low-cost airline. The worst was the quality of their service.

They lost our luggage and made very little effort to find it, they acted like we were liars when we told them that it had important things in it and they owed it to us. They are atrocious. Don't count on them for any goodwill gestures.

I will never, never take this airline again even if they offered, I would refuse.

A good airline despite my fears

2 Flights:
- Paris to Dublin (with layover)
- Dublin to New York
The plane had seats that were pretty comfortable, and the Airbus 330-300 has good legroom, a little less than on the Airbus 320, but still reasonable.
The Airbus 330-300 had individual screens with music and movies in French and a live flight map. There were also some magazines in the seat pocket.
The flight attendants always available and served you some free things such as a meal and soda. If you wanted more you had to pay (it's low-cost), but the free things were enough.
The flights went by without a lot of turbulence (I have a fear of flying so I can't say the same for myself).
The planes were on time (The arrival was 30 minutes late since the pilot had avoided some turbulence for comfort: normal)
Luggage arrived in good shape.
I must admit that Irish accents are distinctive and can be difficult to understand, which is not reassuring, but that wasn't their fault.
I recommend this flight.

No complaints here!

Nothing at all to complain about! The space you get in economy class on an A380 is good. The in-flight entertainment performs well, offering newly...
