| As I sat in the international section of Logan Airport in Boston, I promised myself to add a Wow Air review. The Wow Air gate personnel called for passengers to certify their carry-ons before the flight. Since I carried only a 33-liter lightweight backpack, they quickly slapped their purple You May Pass tag on its handle. I kept that tag on the bag for all four flight segments with Wow, and was never asked about it again. Perhaps because they examined the bags earlier, there was no baggage-related delay or backlog at boarding. We were shuffled onto a descending escalator to a small room but not allowed to board for a few minutes. With no one in charge in that small room, we passengers had to spread out to allow the unending flow to get off the escalator. It could have become a problem, and although it didn't, I'll dock Wow one rating point for that. On board, was as advertised. Food and drinks, even water, cost money. (I especially enjoyed the ~$9 hot ham and cheese sandwich.) Legroom was better than on Southwest. There was no entertainment, but there were two power plugs in every three-seat row, so forewarned passengers such as me could watch as much video as we brought with us. All four segments departed and arrived about on time. The Frankfurt to Keflavik plane did not have power plugs, though it did have six channels of music in the armrests. Service was friendly, and as I mentioned, there were no problems. I'm happy to recommend Wow Air as a cheap option for Europe to America flights, but not so much from America to Europe. Wow's US flights all depart in the early evening for arrival in Iceland in the wee hours, with hurried connections to Europe arriving in the morning. With an early evening departure and a slightly overwarm cabin, I found it hard to convince my body to sleep during the five-hour Atlantic flight. Pulling an all-nighter like that didn't help my jet lag. I'd much rather take an early morning flight to get to Europe around bedtime or a late-night flight with a better chance of napping. If you don't get caught in one of the horror stories listed by other travelers here, Wow Air gives you exactly what it says it will : An amazing price if you're willing to travel light and bring your own entertainment. Only you can decide whether that's worth it for you.
