When I lived in NYC I noticed Iceland Air would advertise pretty often on the subways and also on the bus stops. They’d usually post a gorgeous picture and have a catchy proposition enticing you to visit. I remember seeing deals from $699 and $799 but this week TravelZoo is highlighting a deal that is being offered by Iceland Air for round-trip airfare and four nights hotel for $899 after taxes and fees. The deal can be extended for $80 per person per night up to 4 additional days for a total of about $1250 per person based on double occupancy for 8 nights.
