Icelandair is having an excellent business class sale from North America to Iceland. Their business class is more like domestic first class with reclining seats, but it sure beats coach! Plus it comes with 2 free 70 pound checked bags per passenger and lounge access.
This is valid in the summer season where you can more easily see the stunning landscape or in the winter season when you can try to hunt down the northern lights!
You’ll also earn 125% of the flown miles when you credit your flight to Alaska Airlines miles with this A class fare and those miles will count towards Alaska Airline elite status. For example a flight from Chicago to Iceland will earn 7,360 Alaska miles round-trip.
