Icelandic "Saga" class ; what are the seats like?

2019
Is "Saga" class on Icelandic the same as business class?

Found that the Saga level seats are about $1k cheaper than Aer Lingus /United/Lufthansa, business class, flying from NJ to Dublin in June.
Of course there's a short layover in Reykjavik, adding 3 hrs more than a non-stop flight.

Do the seats allow you to lie flat, like on United business class?

Don't get your hopes up.

And beware that KEF is often absolute chaos.

Have flown Saga class twice and will do so again this July. I was impressed. I usually fly British Airways Business Class. The seats in Saga do not fully recline. No flat beds as on BA. I really didn’t find this a problem. They recline enough to be very comfortable. They supply nice duvets and the food was about the best I’ve been served with the exception of First class on BA.

I did read mixed reviews but I had an excellent experience. As far as chaos at Keflavík, it was hectic when we went through in 2016 but the weather was likely a factor and hey have done considerable upgrading in the past few years. I haven’t heard of any negative experiences recently although any airport can have backups due to weather etc. I have hired a private guide for one day during our quick layover. He is allowing about 45 minutes from flight arriival until pick us up. Seems short to me but he meets people almost daily so I figure he has more experience in determining time allowances than my one time experience.
