I had to go to Iceland back in January for work, and I decided to fly with Wow Air as it’s been around three years since I last flew them.

Wow, are based at Reykjavik airport and fly to many destinations in Europe as well as the USA. You can pre-order a meal with them when booking your ticket online, which is what I did on this flight.

Just a tip since 1 February 2017 the airline is no longer accepting cash as a form of payment inflight, and all purchases made inflight are charged in USD. (Visa and Mastercards only).


Pre-ordering your meal on Wow Air is quite simple. Once you have made your booking, you can visit their manage my booking function and add your meals. Note that if you’re booking connecting flights, the meal will only be served on your flight ex Iceland.





My pre-order meal arrived promptly after take off, and I also decided to buy my favourite yoghurt, the super bar and sparking water.

wow air mealPre-order: Spicy chicken with rice, corn and one carrot. 

The meal itself was quite good, the chicken breast was moist and spicy too, but I didn’t mind at all. It was probably a little more expensive than other pre-order meal programs I have experienced, but you have to remember that these meals are made in Iceland and everything is expensive there…
