Currently Icelandair does not plan to provide Wi-Fi enabled devices onboard.
It will be noted as "ROW44 Icelandair Wi-Fi".
No, that is not possible. A purchase can only take place during the flight, once the Wi-Fi has been activated.
Icelandair Wi-Fi supports most of the major VPN brands, but the experience may vary by flight.
The Wi-Fi connection is obtained through a satellite which is located 36,000km above Earth. The airplane is cruising at a speed of 800km/per hour which results in a connection with different properties to those on the ground.
Wi-Fi is a popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data wirelessly (using radio waves) over a computer network, including high-speed Internet connections. It is used all over the world at so called hot spots, public areas, offices and private homes to provide connection to the Internet.
It is Icelandair's goal to have all airplanes equipped with a Wi-Fi connection. However, during peak season some airplanes may not be equipped with Wi-Fi.
All you need is a Wi-Fi enabled device with an internet browser.
All flights with a Wi-Fi equipped airplane are expected to have a Wi-Fi connection. Some limitations may occur during some the flights. Information cards are placed in the seat pockets in front of you that indicate the Wi-Fi coverage on Icelandair´s routes.
Each Wi-Fi device is different so Icelandair cannot provide detailed connection instructions in this FAQ. In the seat pocket you'll find a Wi-Fi card with information about the service. Please make sure your device, phone and/or tablet is in airplane mode and you have turned on the Wi-Fi on your device. Then open a browser and the Icelandair Wi-Fi portal page opens. If you are booked Saga Class passenger or a Saga Gold member you use the complimentary option; otherwise you use the purchase option to connect.
The reason could be that currently the airplane is flying where there is no Wi-Fi coverage. Please study the coverage in the Wi-Fi card in the seat pocket or in the Wi-Fi Portal. You can compare the coverage to the flight route in the in-flight entertainment system to verify if there is currently no coverage.
The reason could be one of the following but not limited to: Missing or incorrect information in the fields needed when purchasing. Wrong credit card number, wrong expiry date, or credit card security number not correctly entered.
For the system to be able to authenticate you, your Saga Club number needs to be in your booking. If it's not in the booking you can enter it by opening Icelandair's homepage and select “My trips”. Log in by entering your booking reference and last name, then enter your Saga Club number along with needed information and save the information. Now you should be able to log in using your booking reference and Saga Club number. If the problem exists, next time you are connected to the Internet you can send an e-mail to email@example.com and describe the problem and hopefully it can be resolved before your future flights. You can use the payment method to access the Internet.
No, you don't need to sign out.
No, the Wi-Fi system does not store user's login information between flights.
That´s the name of the company that provides the Wi-Fi connection to Icelandair.
Yes, your device needs to be in airplane mode during all phases of the flight. Please notice you might need to activate Wi-Fi on your device after selecting airplane mode.
The purchased/authenticated Wi-Fi connection is per device. If you authenticated or purchased the service on your laptop you can't open the same Wi-Fi connection on your tablet computer etc.
You can browse the internet, check your e-mail, read your favorite news web sites and do some social networking. Please notice that some high bandwidth activities may be restricted. For best performance you should close all apps that are running in the background.
You will see a Wi-Fi icon when you enter the airplane.
It's a satellite based Wi-Fi. On top of the airplane is an antenna that communicates with satellites. Inside the airplane are Wireless Access Points that communicate with the antenna and the passengers' devices.
The use of laptop computers is limited to the cruising phase of the flight and forbidden during take-off and landing.

There are a number of advantages to going cashless. First and foremost, passenger services will be even more efficient and the payment process will be faster. Time now spent on counting cash payments will from now on be used on providing a faster on-board service. Moreover, all post-flight settlements will be swifter and crew members will have more time to make your journey smoother. This change is not without precedent. Many of the world’s largest airlines no longer accept cash on board. For example, American Airlines implemented this change in February 2010 and many other leading airlines, like Continental Airlines, United Airlines, JetBlue and Southwest followed suit.
Aftter 29th of April 2016, we will accept debit cards, all credit cards, and Saga Points. Moreover, also passengers can Pre-Purchase meals online before their journey.
As of 29th of april 2016 we only accept electronic payments.

The email recipient can then place a bid for an amount they are willing to pay for an upgrade on each flight. If the offer is accepted, the passenger pays the same amount for each passenger included in the booking.
Let’s take an example of two passengers in the same booking on a one-way flight from Iceland to Glasgow. The first passenger of the booking receives an email and decides to bid £80 for a CLASS UP upgrade for each passenger. If the offer is accepted, £160 will be charged to the credit card that the
passenger used in the offer process.

However, it is possible to submit a new offer for an upgrade on another flight. To clarify, in cases of changes/cancellations made by the passenger after receiving an upgrade confirmation, the amount that was offered for the upgrade will not be refunded
and cannot serve as payment for an upgrade on another date.
