We made it to Europe in relative comfort. When we first booked the WOW flight late last spring, they owned a couple of planes and were just starting with introductory flights as low as $99 each way. Ours was during a busier period and ranged from $200-$250 each way, still a great price for Europe in October.
We found them to be much like a no frills Jet Blue. Besides Boston, from where we left, they had flights Thursday night from DC and Baltimore. For whatever reason, our flight and the one from Baltimore each had four hour delays.
This new airline largely flies passengers through Iceland to five spots in Europe: Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen (where we were headed), London and Berlin. All five of those flights, originally scheduled for 6-7 a.m. departures from Iceland, were all held up for several hours to wait for everyone coming from the US. No one was left stranded. Not a strong rating for a “punctual” airline, but a great relief for those of us who normally could have expected to miss a connection.
The planes were clean and newer with a bit of whimsy. If you wanted food, all at a price, you needed to hit the “Honk if you’re Hungry” button. From Boston to Iceland, there was no in flight entertainment (no music or movies, although on the second leg there were drop down screens with a movie in Icelandic and English subtitles—-the old Tom and Jerry cartoon was in English——and there was music). Beverage service, even water and coffee, came at a cost. The always smiling staff was dressed in crisp and sharp retro fuchsia outfits, and they were very friendly.
We would definitely fly WOW again.
