Does any US flagged carrier offer flights from the US into Iceland? I checked many sites, as well as Star Alliance's web site, and it seems that even though the EU carriers will fly from EU, the US carriers just leave it all to FI. Am I missing something?

I may be overlooking somthing, but I believe Pan Am was the last U.S. carrier to serve Iceland and that was many years ago and only a couple of times a week. I believe Pan Am's service was largely to support what was then a sizable U.S. military presence in Iceland. I think PA dropped KEF sometime in the 1970s.

Icelandair used to have a marketing agreement with Southwest. I don't believe that they had "through" check-in or interline bags, and it was not a codeshare. But they did offer at least a joint sales agreement by way of the BWI hub.
I think it would be smart for Icelandair to establish ties with a US carrier in Florida, New York, Minneapolis, or Seattle. But I'm sure they've thought about it.
