Day 2 - Boston to Iceland
Reykjavik Travel Blog› entry 3 of 27 › view all entries
Our flight out of Boston left on time and was very nice. Since we were flying Saga Class, we were the first to board the plane in Boston. We found our seat, the first two in the very front, and settled in for the 5 hour flight. We were immediately served drinks while the other passengers boarded. Once all the preflight talks were done, the plane took off for Iceland.
We were served dinner on this flight as well. I chose the Flounder with potatoes and greenbeans, and Lena had the beef tenderloin with potatoes au gratin. Dinner also came with rolls and a glass of wine, which wasn't all that good, but after a few glasses, who cares!
After dinner, we settled into our over sized seats and napped on and off during the flight. Hours later, as the sun started to come up, I attempted to take some pictures, but the sun was directly in front of the plane, so I didn't get the shots I was hoping for. There were also a lot of clouds below us, so many I didn't know if we were still over water or not. As we started our decent and we broke through the clouds, it was wet and rainy in Iceland. I did manage a few pictures before touch down, which was very smooth.
We had an hour and a half before our next flight left Iceland, so this gave us plenty of time to go through customs, and find our departure gate. Here Lena got some coffee and me some water to sip on. The wait was short and we soon boarded our next plane to Sweden.
