Anyone know anything about the proposed new carrier "Norse Atlantic?"

Their current website is https://norseatlantic.com/ but they are apparently starting a new website on August 10, 2021, at this location: https://flynorse.com/ .

Looks like they plan to take over some of the longhaul routes that Norwegian used to serve.

The person I have been chatting with claims they have leased 15 of the former Norwegian 787's. Seems like a lot of planes for a startup.

I happened to read about it, see the link below (in Danish, google translate may come in handy).

Norwegian 2.0 sort of has an easier head start in this environment than a typical start-up may have had in say 2019.

Anything new on Norse? A former employee of the old Norwegian airlines who is hoping for a job with Norse has queried me, evidently she hasn't heard anything lately.

Looks like Norse is selling seats

LAX-OSL in Sept is $169 in the back and $419 in Premium. Pretty sure the latter is the old Norwegian config, which is *very* comfortable compared to BA Premium Economy, even with the pitch reduced in the 787-9 sub fleet.

They had talked about doing Ontario but too risky even for them. Starting these OSL routes as Winter approaches seems foolish bit perhaps enough Norwegians want to go to CA or FL.

Does seem a bit foolish they could not wait for their UK AOC. It sounds like they have decided Stanstead was too risky and gone back to LGW. I think even Norwegian did not manage to lose money LAX-LGW!

Not for the faint hearted but those Premium seats are really nice - and the free wifi worked!

What is it like to fly Premium Cabin on Norse Atlantic Airways

I flew on the Inaugural Norse flight from JFK to OSL. Norse Atlantic Airways is a brand new airline based in Norway with a vision of bringing affordable transatlantic travel to/from the US (JFK, FLL, LAX, MCO) and Europe (OSL, LGW, BER) .

I reviewed the inflight experience, cabin, food, costs and premium seats then let you know if it's worth flying Norse.

Let's see if this lasts longer than the previous Scandinavian attempt at leisure-driven, low-cost O&D flying between Europe and the U.S.. The "Premium Class" looks like a mediocre premium economy offering, but of course it is much much cheaper than any such offering would be with a legacy airline. I don't think the product is of interest to me, but I am curious to see if they make it through the summer without operational issues.

Failed as Norwegian, rinse and repeat Why investors give cash to such ventures just after being burned is a mystery.

Time will tell. I am rooting for them to reduce transatlantic pricing overall for passengers.
