Question About Icelandair Inflight Service

I heard that Icelandair charges for all inflight drinks except for water, even during mealtime. This was confirmed by a couple of posting on airlinemeals.net as well as at the Icelandair website that says that a premium is charged for all drinks.

But, I also recently heard from a friend who flew them LHR-KEF in January that they were no longer charging for such services.

Anybody know the situation? I imagine that Icelandair's new service to SFO-KEF, a total of 8hrs and 30 min., would be hard going without any free drinks service.

Im not knocking FI, they are one of the dwindling airlines still giving a proper free meal on European flights with tea and coffee and not chraging for crisps and frozen sandwiches like IB, LX and now SK.

I flew Icelandair a few years ago, and all drinks were free, including alcohol. Of course that may have changed since then, but I remember my impression at the time was that the airline's "no frills" reputation was not quite accurate--their inflight service was better than, say, any U.S. domestic flight.

Since when they stopped charging? I was in their website and they still say they charge for beverages. I flew with them CPH-KEF in Aug 04, and they charged for drinks. Keep an eye on their prices! Ie. beer: 200 ISK, 20 DKK, 20 SEK, 2 EUR and 2 USD... Better always bring dollars with you!

EB, did you go to this part of their webpage?

http://www.icelandair.co.uk/main/view.jsp?branch=5330019

"Each of our flights features a meal appropriate to the length of flight and time of day. With lunch and dinner flights, coffee, tee, soft drinks, fruit juices and quality Icelandic water are complimentary. Alcoholic beverages can be requested at a small charge."

This actually is followed up by the fact that now, again, free drinks are offered on all flights and my family has enjoyed that quite a few times (Aug 04 is a bit long ago for judgment, and "I was on their website" is barely enough).

So you don't have to pay for drinks, except of course alcoholic, but that's nothing new and has been like that for ages.

EuroBonus: I imagine you were referring to the alcoholic drinks while I think this thread concerns drinks like orange juice and soft drinks.

I flew them in February this year and they were charging for alcoholic beverages, nothing more, nothing less.
