Yes, Icelandair has always had a row #13 on all planes.
There are many more airlines who have row #13.
On a SAS F50 I have seen 13 rows numbered 1-12 and 14. Rediculous!
Have you ever slept in hotel room #13? I guess not.
Best regards, Preben Norholm
Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm

My house number is 13 and I recall my mother saying soon after I moved in that I must immediately remove the brass number from the front door and give the house a name, which is something of a family tradition. However, I left the number on the door - it gets polished regularly and is there for all to see. I don't have a hang-up with # 13. In fact any numerical bad luck I might have had, has involved other numbers.
I seem to recall that I have sat in row 13 on more than one aircraft, but because it was no big deal, the details are hazy.

AirCanada has a row 13 on almost everything in the fleet thats big enough to have 13 rows! (CRJ/Dash 8-300 are smallest that do) in fact they start the economy section on all the larger airliners at row 12!
