Icelandair is offering business class between the US and Reykjavik from $740 roundtrip. I frequently see US East Coast – Iceland for around $1800 round trip. This is a much better fare, and deep discounts are available even from farther West (Seattle, Denver, Vancouver) where prices are generally higher. And the great thing is this deal is even available during summer, which is a great time to visit Iceland!
Business class is akin to domestic first class with foot rests and extra legroom. Their business class lounge for the return flight is excellent. A limited-recline product is more than decent enough for the short flights from the East Coast, Boston – Reykjavik is the same distance as Washington Dulles – Los Angeles. From Seattle or Vancouver I’d want something more comfortable. However business class for the price of economy? I’ll take it!
You can fly from Boston ($740), Washington ($790), Montreal ($740), Chicago ($740), Orlando ($860), Tamps ($860), Vancouver ($820), Denver ($840), and Seattle ($860).
Impressively this is a base fare of just $260 each way for business class!
