Low price, Iceland stopover, very modern and cool looking airplanes

Low-cost airline! No (free) food and movies on the plain, small legroom and every piece of luggage costs extra, even though it seems that the carry on luggage payment is not strictly enforced. Need to be prepared for that (bring your own movies or a book and buy food at the airport or just don't come hungry :-)

The price is right and if you follow the baggage guidelines, you won't have surprise fees, etc.

Nothing is offered for free, not even water. There is not an option to use/buy wifi either. It would be nice to at least have a tv screen that offered some pre-loaded entertainment, but instead you pay for an ipad rental if you want that.

The food was good. Inexpensive. Boarding was easy and fast and got to my destination in good time.

Everything was extra- water, food, baggage. I had to pay twice for my baggage- there and back and it wasn't cheap. Very uncomfortable seats with little leg room. I wasn't able to sleep on my overnight flight.

Surprise $70 carryon charge No wifi Late arrival Lost Luggage No customer service This is the worst airline i've ever flown on and i've been on pretty much all of them. Not worth any savings, which are swallowed up in fees and surcharges anyway. the only 'wow' i experienced was in being flat-out appalled by the poor customer service lack of professionalism. Research this company before you fly; barely started and already seeing complaints pile up all over.

For a low budget airline the seats were quite comfortable. The crew was also friendly and the boarding experience was ok.

The fare price was ok without considering the fact that literally everything from a carry on to a pillow to a soda is at an additional cost. In the end I could have paid a full fare flight from NYC to Belgium that would include carry on bags, food and entertainment for a cheaper price. Not sure whether I'd fly again wow air for long haul flights...

Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side).

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days. Fares are subject to change and may not be available on all flights or dates of travel. Some carriers charge additional fees for extra checked bags. Please check the carriers' sites.
