They have pretty typical airline service. The food is ok and the seats are about average with maybe a little above average leg room. You get movies. The flight attendants were nice enough. Keflavik airport is nice, but rather small. The Duty Free is reasonably sized. We flew Icelandair last spring and had good flights both ways. Have fun on your trip.

Icelandair has good value for money.
Also, if you go, try to avoid geting a taxi (cab) from the airport to Reykjavik. They are really expensive. Instead you may use a shuttle service to all hotels (which I think some are being owned by Iceladair) with a nominal fee. Reykjavik is one of the most expensive cities in the globe, so some research needs to be done, to avoid paying a fortune.

My buddy absolutely swears by them. He loved Icelandair when he flew...said they were the nicest 757's he'd ever flown on. I believe he took them from BWI. He said the flight attendants were great and very friendly...also nice to look at. He absolutely loved Iceland and I think Icelandair had a good share of the responsibility for his opinion of the country.
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!

Don't expect anything special. In my oppinion they are the closet you get to a intercontinental LCC. But you get what you pay for, so no hard feelings
They served one small meal with complementary water and coffee. The rest you had to pay for. The IFE in economy is comparable to European short-haul.
The F/A's are nice and service-minded. The comfort of the aircraft however, is not very good. I have managed to get a seat in the exit rows three out of four times, so I don't complain.
Iceland is a beautiful place. Be sure to get out of Reykjavik. Rent a car from a US travel agent, it is actually not that expensive (we had one in three days for 200$ including insurances). You can drive around all night, as it never gets dark
