Icelandair has great prices on their Saga Premium (business) class seats. Last year, I flew from Seattle to Dublin via Keflavik in Saga Premium class. The service was excellent and the hot meal service was well presented. Their fleet of Boeing 737MAX and Boeing 757 aircraft used a 2 + 2 business class layout in recliner seats. Business class passengers have lounge access including the spacious Saga Lounge in Keflavik.

Icelandair is a great niche airline and I enjoyed flying SEA-KEF-DUB in Saga (business) class. The service is great including a nice business class food and beverage service. If you are into gin, the drink menu has a “Gin Library” of eight selections of gin, including some from Iceland.
Flying to Europe from the west coast in business class was comfortable even in a narrow-body airliner. The stop at Keflavik is about the halfway point so you can get off the aircraft and enjoy the Saga Lounge.
The business class fares for this sale are about half off the standard fares. When I flew from Seattle to Dublin in Saga (business) class, the full fare was $3,340.00 round trip. You can’t beat the free stopover option to explore this amazing place.
