The flight was good and no bad experiences
London to Bergen - Gatwick ground crew didn't load passengers onto the plane correctly by separating boarding passangers. Caused a lot of stress for people boarding at the front trying to get to the back and vice Vera.
Excellant cheap way to fly to America
the flight was really good. Very convenient that it goes straight to Fort Lauderdale. The only thing I could say for improvement was the price for the food. GPB 25 and food was really bad. But in all very happy!
I flew long haul from Singapore and this time a short trip inside Europe with Norwegian airlines. It's an A.M.A.Z.I.N.G experience. As an example we connected from Oslo to Asia on a full service airline that won the top award for Skytrax and 2016 and 2017. Yet we had a better experience on the low cost Norwegian airlines!
Seats was very tight no space to move or sleep
You overbooked my flight then booked me onto the incorrect flight so I spent an entire day going to 3 different airports in NYC and flew back to the wrong airport in London.
It wasn't to do with the flight itself but prior to the flight, I booke a return ticket at the airport and the lady who served me was rude so that put a damper on my trip.
Very easy to check in , straight forward service would definitely use again
an awful airline, we got unfairly refused to board back to the UK for not carrying dollars cash on us, absolutely unbelievable!! booked our returned flight for ?800+ ended up paying approx ?3000 in airline ticket plus 48h into airports to get back to the UK
Good flight all in all
Nice flight, would be nice to be able to check in online though.
For an international flight by a major company, i was very bad surprised that i'd need to pay for lunch. a more pleasant surprise was the free Wi-Fi on-board
Great outward flight but poor management of return journey from Orlando MCO.
Busy airport, lack of space to sit or stand
