In this trip report we analyse Wow Air in Business and Economy Class on their long haul flights between America and Europe. My reviews can be found below.
WOW Air is an Icelandic airline with a modern fleet. It is probably the cheapest way to fly Economy from American to Europe. They headline with super-cheap $99 transatlantic economy tickets, although when I looked recently, the cheapest one-way ticket from Boston or Washington to Reykjavik was $109, and from New York to Reykjavik was coming in at $149.99
The advantage of flying WOW Air is that Wow Air’s fleet is much newer than many rival carriers. You may also catch a glimpse of the Northern lights. When flying to Iceland/Europe, sit on the left side of the plane. When leaving from Iceland to the US, pick a seat on the right side. There are, however, many more serious disadvantages of flying WOW Air on their cheapest tickets. These cheap tickets really don’t include anything, not even ordinary hand luggage allowances or food and drink, plus on most WOW air flights you are routed through Reykjavik which adds to your flight time.
Business Class (or Biz) is more like Premium Economy and includes luggage and food.
