Icelandair's Economy Light fares only include a standard sized carry-on bag plus one personal item. Checked bag fees are $76 USD/$101 CAD each way when purchased online. If you need to check bags, it's cheaper to purchase an Economy Standard fare (+$120 USD/$150 CAD roundtrip), which includes one free checked bag.
You may choose your own assignments from standard economy class seats that are still available at no extra charge.
Free Stopover in Iceland
You can book a free stopover in Iceland for up to 3 days on the Economy Light fare. Extra taxes and separate bag fees may apply. If you want to stay longer in Iceland, the Economy Standard fare allows stopovers up to 7 days.
The upgrade to standard Economy costs an extra $120 USD/$150 CAD roundtrip. This includes one free checked bag and allows stopovers up to 7 days.
Other airlines such as SAS, Norwegian, and TAP Air Portugal may offer better prices in some markets and there may be nonstop options on other major carriers. Choose the airline according to your needs. Icelandair may have better routing and allows for free stopovers in Iceland if that is something that interests you.
As an example, I found flights departing New York JFK on Monday, October 14, returning from Frankfurt FRA on Monday, October 21, for $480 roundtrip.
