Their premium seat on the 787 is quite nice, so be interesting to see the prices. Not sure I like having to pay for water onboard though.

Is LGW closer to LAX than LHR?

I'm on the A380 in a couple of weeks that leaves at 3pm and arrives at 7:10pm.
The Norwegian 787 leaves 35 mins later and gets in 15 mins earlier.
Might end up slightly better immigration wise if they use the same terminal?

So LGW gets JFK back. I do remember flying BA LGW-JFK in the distant past, on a 747 IIRC.

And it's not just copycat routes. FLL widens our choice and helps avoid the dreadful MIA arrival experience for 'aliens'.

I think the 787 is a little quicker, plus LGW isn't LHR so you can take 30 minutes off for that!

LGW is 24 miles further by the Great Circle distance, however this is in no way the reason for the scheduled flight time difference.

No longer the case...

This is already bookable.

Next August £300 return to NY in economy, all inclusive

Premium starts at £1200

No minimum stay required, either.

And one-way prices to NYC are £149! I can see this might be a good backup to use a one-way avios redemption.

You happen to be flying during the short period when the time difference is only 7 hours rather than the normal 8. This explains the apparent discrepancy. The flight duration for your A380 trip is 11h 10m. The DY schedules imply a flight duration of 11h 20m.

It is down to the UK and US putting their clocks back at different times.

Flew once with them from MMX to ARN, I did not know that they assign seats at the gate. The lady next to me was friendly and she did not mind I had taken her seat

Ha! That compares nicely to £360 of taxes if you want to redeem your Avios for a 'free' flight to NYC!

Actually, if you pay Norwegian an extra £60 they throw in a 1 case bag allowance, seat assignment and meals for the round trip.

I looked and BA comes in around £700 in Y next August to NYC.

For anyone who is interested, Norwegian's Y+ is a 45" recliner with I think a 2-2-2 layout.

Can someone please explain why Norwegian are effectively getting 5th Freedom rights in both directions - or are they a UK/US company as well?

The EU/US air service agreement covers EEA countries too. Any EU/EEA carrier can fly from any point in the EU/EEA to any point in the US.
