Double bucket list, anyone?

All Icelandair flights come with free drinks and seat assignments, and though checked bags would cost extra, a generous carry on and personal item policy makes this a pretty easy airline to travel carry on only. For £239, you can score round trip flights from London to New York City, and since all flights go via Iceland, you can add a free stopover up to three nights long in either or both directions. Of course, the hotels are on you, but the fact that you’re able to lock in NYC and Iceland with just £239 is pretty darn cool.
