To kindof answer Susan

To answer Susan, Norwegian do not serve anything other than free Wine/Beer any more in Premium plus the marginal but quite survivable food. I think now the same as what United offers in even Basic...

Economy

100% agree on the legacy carriers for E-. They must really be hurting Norwegian. Premium is a really great on board hard product for the money. BA flirt with competing in WT+, they are not that...

Lounge etc.

The problem is that most people flying United (the dominant carrier) on any kind regular basis of SFO have Gold or better, so even in the back of the bus you get lounge access. Even with a branded...

To add to the other posters I am still flying them West Coast to the UK, not booking too far out though. The Premium product is great for a 10 hr flight and beats UA/VS/BA. I would still highly...

I share most of the views about long term stability of Norwegian and agree with everyone on the need for a plan B. I have done quite a few flights with them with mostly good results.

Did fly them...

Worked in the UK last month

Did work for me just fine to purchase a ticket. I was logged to my RR account.

As others have suggested something like ExpressVPN is a good tool to have for this kind of geofencing problem.

I would say it is not looking good for them! The bonds are now yielding over 30% ... way beyond even junk, so the price must have gone down to 1/2 just in the last few days after halving in Dec. ...

Flew them LAX-LGW Premium, a couple of days ago. The kiosk gave me a PRE boarding pass and even a One World lounge pass, on a flight booked before Dec 21. I was expecting both to be a problem and a...

I feel like an idiot now. I did A list the old fashioned way this year. Having this earlier would have stopped be straying to AS and UA so much during the year so would have helped Southwest out...

Annoying, the LGW lounge was actually not bad, if a bit crowded. The Premium seat densification was not exactly a nice change either.
I am not sure where they see the premium product fitting in...

Norwegian Rumors (again!)

A lot in the current press on Norwegian getting very close to the edge on some bond covenants in the next week or two and needing cash in a big hurry. Obviously the mess at LGW must not have helped! ...

I think they warn you not to bet on this in the notification.
Plane could get swapped, missing crew may get subbed. Arrival AC may get sequenced in by ATC faster than expected.

If there is a non stop, a connection is always bad. Norwegian OAK-LGW has not been canceling, just late. 1-3 hrs most days but is does go and you are still at the hotel for check in time. and...

In case it helps, what I have done in the past when Norwegian are having a bad day, is just to book a 30K mile one way award SFO-LHR on United. They seem to be pretty much always avail day of travel...

I've done this route a lot and looks like you live near me. I gave up on United with the arrival of 10 across 777 and 9 across 787.
Just not worth the stress of worrying about a J upgrade,...

If they really did swap baggage load, as suggested, this would be a probable FAA bust for Weight and Balance not being accurate. For sure a safety of flight issue.
I suspect United will be pretty...

Unprotected Connections

I would be pretty cautious booking these kind of unprotected connections with any airline, especially Norwegian. If you miss the connection, you have good potential to get the whole downstream...

+1 for the 10 across 777 seating. Not sure I want to try the back of a 9 across 787 either.

I already baled to Norwegian and even darkest BA for their Premium Economy products TATL. The former...

Thanks

Thanks all for the input. Not enough planes to really operate I guess, per wikipedia and the link above. The posts also mention an A350, which I did not think they flew. 10 across in an A340/330 just...

Has anyone tried Frenchbee?

I had never heard of them but their PPT-SFO flew over my house low enough this afternoon, to want to look up who it was on flightradar24.

The from the website they do SFO-ORY too. A quick look for...

Not the same product as biz but plenty good enough for the price and ok for a 10 hr flight. Upgrades way too hard on United on hub routes and the copay on cheaper fares to biz is close to what...

I've done this route way too many times, and you are right, in the winter it is harsh TATL. F/J/Y+ loads needed to survive. The Norwegian Premium product is very nice though. If not reliable, it is...

Just annoying they seem to be doomed for long haul

I would agree, unfortunately. Back to boring and expensive United it is.

As a customer, what makes this even more annoying is the growing RR Engine problem alone, is probably non survivable for...

risk mitigation

I was incorrect on their carry on policy. Even more crazy than I thought. If you buy flex premium or flex economy you get the 10+5. Even discount premium you just get 10Kg. A very silly way to run...
