Getting to St Petersburg, Russia from Baton Rouge is not an easy journey if you do not want to fly Aeroflot, the Russian airline. Because I booked my ticket rather close to my departure date I had trouble finding a reasonably priced business class ticket. I am always amazed at how much these prices can vary. Iceland Air proved to have the best deal. The flight was quite pleasant and uneventful with a brief layover in Reykjavik. I listened to Icelandic music which I found strange and haunting plus watched several informative films on what to do and see in Iceland. The entire flight experience made me want to visit Iceland something I had never considered. When I deplaned I got the biggest pleasant surprise of the entire flight: TWO LADY PILOTS!!
