The amazing value of a free stopover

One of the biggest selling points of cheapIcelandair fares is the fact that they allow a free stop in the country on a ticket. It's a way to get to another city in Europe.

A warning about Icelandair business class

Premium economy on other airlines is what the Sava Class will be like. These seats are similar to those found in domestic first class.

You will want to control your expectations. If you want to earn Alaska miles, or if you want a stop inIceland, you should consider this deal. The flights to and fro from Iceland tend to be shorter.
