    I find it funny that they have put two of these routes into Ohio. Do that many people in Ohio and Michigan really want to go to Iceland? I guess. Couldn’t they just stay home in the winter and experience the same thing 🙂

    There was excess capacity at the prices and service levels the legacy carriers were offering. These new routes open up whole new customer markets to transatlantic travel. If WOW, Icelandair and Norwegian can make a go of it in their still young business models, it will be a real game changer in many ways.

    Your point about KEF being able to handle the extra volume is an important one, though. Does Iceland invest the kind of money that it would take for a major expansion on the hopes this surge in volume can be sustained and continue to expand? Or do they fail to do so and limit the growth, either out of doubts about the sustainability or concerns of being overrun by tourists?

    In some ways today is (or is becoming) the golden age of accessibility to transatlantic travel.
