Where to stay near ExCeL London
Flights to London
Pros: Love the 757 fleet of Icelandair. Professional crew.
Cons: Every flight was late and no effort to do anything about it. Flying in the mid 400’s turned a 1hr 40min layover into a run for the connection. Far be it to use more fuel to deliver on your schedule. I’ve been on too many flights where the pilot found the gas pedal to make up for things on the ground to not think this is Icelandair policy and therefore will have a good chance of happening to me again with them.
Pros: aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great.
Cons: The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?
