You are almost certainly going to arrive in Iceland at its International Airport Keflavik, which is located around 50 minutes outside of Reykjavik. The airport facilities are modern and comfortable. I should know, since I had a five hour layover there on my way back to the States from Scotland in April 2007. There isn't a food court, but there is a good cafeteria style restaurant and a Kaffitar for your coffee fix. There are also plenty of shops selling any last minute gift items you might need (Blue Lagoon Shop, books, Duty Free, etc). My only complaint is that there is no place to get online if you don't have a laptop with you. If you do, you're in luck and WiFi is available throughout the airport.

I didn't fly to or from the airport that is actually in Reykjavik, but it serves mostly domestic flights as well as Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Iceland Air has been offering a free stopover in Iceland for years when you purchase a ticket between North America and Europe. I've been eyeing that for a couple years and decided to take advantage of it on this trip. The service on Iceland Air was great on the four flights that I made, although they are in the process of upgrading their planes now. They're fine, but they don't have individual entertainment units yet (unless you consider beautiful flight attendants as "individual entertainment units", but that would just be a sexist comment). ;-)
