Came in at 10.30 pm from Paris with a 10.5 hour layover to NY. Had to get bags and go through customs no one was there so you just walk through (why bother?). Once through customs you are now outside and have to recheck in to get back in to departure area where it is nice. However check in closes at night and they will not let you check in more than 2.5 hrs before flight. So now you are stuck in a closed up building with 6 chairs and the floor with 100+ other people waiting and sleeping everywhere. No wait a minute they have signs saying no Sleeping/Camping or Cooking on the property with security to make sure! No one working at the airport seemed to have any answers or even care. It was a blessing to have the Coffee shop open early in the morning. The trip to Paris we came through this airport and it was a good experience in departure area with an 1.5 layover we were excited to be going back with a long layover to be able to see what Iceland had to offer for a possible future trip there. We felt more like cattle than Human! This was buy far the worst travel experience my wife and I have ever had. Lessons learned 1) Will never go to this airport or Iceland again. 2) Will not Fly Icelandair again. 3) No more long lay overs at any airports in any countries.
