might be 'fly-by-my-pants' or a great deal... vis my email saw this deal via FlyPlay - deals from certain areas to Iceland, other European locations... to make a short story shorter... signed-up, went thru the process, final results leaving from Hamilton Ont - to Reykjavik, Ice. - total damage return flight was $250 USD... didn't try the accompanying hotel deals because the plan over 2 weeks is to travel around as much as possible... never heard of the airline so it's a mystery right now...

they are discounted European airlines and are entering the North American market. They will have discounted flights to many European cities from Hamilton, ON airport. There was an article on CTV on them a couple of days ago.

I believe they start flying in June.. trying to move your dates.

You can also change to CAD$ at the home page before doing flight search.
I wasn't able to get as low as $325 but found many $350 return in Sept/Oct..

I wanted to get a ticket to London but there is no option to get free stop over in Iceland.. I want to visit Iceland again. it is beautiful.

Bringing a carryon is an extra ~$100 so it works out to around $450 CAD.

Quick google flights search is showing ~$800 with other airlines.

Solid deal if getting to Hamilton isn't a pain in the arse for you.

By using Hamilton, PLAY will pay significantly lower fees than it would at Pearson.

They also will fly 1x daily
  • Keflavik to Hamilton: OG201, 14:50-17:10 (6h 20m block)
  • Hamilton to Keflavik: OG202, 18:35-04:20+1 (5h 45m)

it's crazy expensive but a great place. I was limiting my consumption there for sure. a burger at a bar worked out to be like $35. The cheapest place to get alcohol there is the airport so make sure you grab it there/

Carry on? $100? How much is a checked bag, $200?

Notes:
  • Factor in the cost of getting to Hamilton - Go Train + Cab, or Gas+Parking, etc
  • Iceland is beautiful, but expensive AF. Definitely check it out at least once for about a week, but avoid it as a cheap 1-2 day stopover - you'll pay for it.
  • IIRC, Iceland's tourism board regularly subsidizes flights as stopovers there. I see a lot of deals through KEF. While this is pretty good, it's not spectacular
  • You definitely need a carry-on. It's always colder there than here. If you want to buy/donate wardrobe there, it won't be cheap
  • Have a good water-resistant jacket and waterproof boots in Iceland. The cold isn't terrible unless you get wet, and it can rain quite a bit.

Lots of opinions... been going on a trip a month since retiring, cheaper the flight the better, trying to hit different places/get things off the bucket list so to speak & yes heard about the high costs associated w/Iceland -guess all I can say is U only live once - should invest in a good camera since generally along w/the high costs most ppl agree about the scenic beauty of Iceland...

London connecting flights go into Stansted
other option for England is Liverpool but the prices are very high with Play.

YYZ has Tim Hortons though at a regular price point. Not saying it's amazing, but at least it's an option unlike at KEF.

Icelandic winters are usually milder than Toronto's due to the Gulf Stream. You might feel colder there as you're outside for much of the day while travelling as opposed to here.

Not at regular price points. The one inside Pearson is more expensive. And you can't even use the app to place an order.

It's not $12 for a coffee and croissant there either. I was just there as well and it wasn't significantly more expensive than a regular location.

I didn't say it was. But probably close to $10 after tax
