This airline is abysmal. I had to sit beside a commoner, who almost knocked out my monocle when talking a selfie. The champagne was replaced by cylindrical aluminium vessels of a black carbonated effervescent liquid by the name 'Coke'. I had no arm room to play my clarinet, and no one wanted to play Boules.
I shan't be flying with said airline again. I was so shocked at how proletariat the passengers were, I almost fell of my throne.
Will cost £100pp more to add a meal and luggage each.

That could bring the total to ~£360 from gatwick... which is how much I paid for Virgin Atlantic flights from Heathrow for later this month - which also include complimentary alcohol on board.

Hot if you want to go hand-luggage only, otherwise it's cold.

Flew from Belfast to NY on the 737-800Max recently (the max is for maximum number of people they can get in CORRECTION: Its actually to do with fuel efficiency but my point was that it wasn't to do with in flight entertainment or comfort) and despite being brand new, you have to bring your own entertainment, power blocks, etc. Its £20 for a meal each way (and I think the meal was okay though most people didn’t seem to opt for it). I also paid £20 each way for assigned seating but only because I’d small kids.

On the way out, it was delayed by over 2 hours (but not quite the magic 3 hours where you get compensation) stopping off in Canada to refuel because they’d added more passengers from a cancelled flight at the last minute! On the way back, the flight was only half full so some people were able to stretch out a bit.

My advice is to book the bus which Is $20 each way for adults, way more comfortable than the plane, will wait for you if the flight is delayed and drops you right into Manhattan so don’t be put off by the location of the airport. Even though I’d paid for all the overpriced extras like meals and assigned seating, for a family of 5 this was just over £1K instead of £3K with Aer Lingus. I could take a bit of suffering for a few hours for £2,000. Heat added

How many pairs of undies do you need ! Most people go to New York for a 3-4 night city break , this is a great deal.

Tempting at this price, and Norwegian have been great in the past for me to the US, but Google Images has put me off..

Feb/March in NY is very cold - jackets and jumpers take up space. Plus if you have your own 100ml+ toiletries that you can't buy abroad you're kinda screwed. Worth bearing in mind.
Voted in the top 10 of the worlds worst airlines

You can get meal, seat and luggage for typically £50-70 extra if you go through some online travel agents (Expedia is one). But you actually get 2 bags instead of 1 so not only is it cheaper, it is also better.

It can occasionally be a bunch more than £50-70 on top though.

But given the uncertainty around Norwegian at the moment maybe Virgin is a safe bet, plus the free booze.
Ah..the Dogs D1ck airline.

Who on earth designed the artwork on the planes?
I too have flown Norwegian.com very recently to Fort Lauderdale. It looked to be a new plane and was very clean. I had looked at reviews before booking and someone has posted that tea, coffee and water are available FOC. Airline food vaires greatly and is always subjective anyhow, but I would like to confirm there are NO drinks whatsoever. We had had a lovely lunch before we set off, took a couple of sandwiches with us and had hoped to take advantage of the free drinks. I asked to buy a cup of tea, but because I hadn't purchased the meal, my request was turned down. So folks, be warned, there are no drinks available unless the full meal deal is purchased.

Is that even legal to not have free water?
Is it that difficult to take a bottle of water on board...
Jesus... People flying to New York and moaning about getting a free glass of water..
I returned from NYC yesterday with Norweigan. The plane was great and looked brand new, plenty of leg room (I'm 6'2)
but they charged for everything!

The snacks and alcohol I was expecting to be charged for, but $3 for a water was a bit much and we had the same experience with tea/coffee, not being able to purchase it separately to the meal, which is ridiculous.
The cabin was quite cold and, although I'm not saying they did this on purpose (I am), they charged for a blanket!
The initial price is hot if you're willing to be stubborn and stick to no further purchases, but in future, I will personally look at other airlines that offer complimentary checked baggage, snacks and drinks for a small increase in ticket price.

I actually almost booked this but with hotels booking separate they add city tax etc on booking etc. Plus on the Norwegian website I could imagine sitting there with the basic bit surrounded by people with meals etc. I booked with BA for 7 days in March and was £700 for flights and 4 start hotel in the main bit with breakfast. Purely for peace of mind. Like others have said if you don't mine having just hand luggage, people around you eating etc and just the basics great deal. For a holiday to be all sorted best to go all in with someone like virgin or BA
I will stick to BA or Virgin. Norweigan have 737 aircraft (on some of the routes) which are single aisle with no IFE. Frequent wet leasing means no guarantee of Norwegian either.
Flew Norwegian to New York in January this year - they were excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

meh, I have just paid £460 for business class to SF
but that is worth a load of air miles I have religious collected for the last year
NY would have been a lot less miles + cheaper again

Not terribly relevant to this deal then?
Norwegian use the 787 on flights to the US from Gatwick. Edinburgh they use the 737-800 and have just introduced the brand new 737-8MAX. Incredibly modern fleet with WiFi. This deal is hot.
If your in the middle of the country I would recommend the Gatwick route rather than Edinburgh. As you will be on the dreamliner rather than the 737 max (basically a bigger version of the basic planes ryanair use) it will be roomier and they are brand new, but wont be as nice as the dreamliner

Flew the LGW-JFK route last year and thought the experience was excellent. Had a free upgrade to the premium cabin on the outward journey which was outstanding and a far superior product to Virgin PE, would definitely pay for the upgrade if budget allowed next time.

When I flew to the States there was a second security check, immediately before boarding the flight, at which they confiscated all bottles of water, even those purchased in the terminal.
Personally don't care how much I would save, I would never fly with this company again. Not only do they lie and cheat people out of paying them in compensation for an over 16 hour flight delay and losing two days worth of a holiday, but they also lie on the fact of why their flight was delayed.

I know not everyone will agree and have different experiences, just You only need to research what their company is like to understand how awful this company is on dealing with customers who ruin peoples holiday, time and money.

There wasn't for me when I used Norwegian in January. Maybe different terminals operate differently. Still only a few quid on board

Ah..the Dogs D1ck airline.Who on earth designed the artwork on the planes?

Hahaha Red Rocket. :s
Booked these back in April to fly to Boston in November, £340 with booked exit row seats, checked bag and a meal - the nearest direct flights (from LHR) with BA, Virgin etc were around £500 and still are. This'll be my 6th time out of the country this year so need to keep it cheap.

Going by Flightradar the flights are more or less on time and aircraft used are the ones advertised. Reviews are the same as for every airline - mostly bad and generally don't reflect my experience.

The MAX has nothing to do with the maximum number of passengers.

The MAX is the next version of the 737. The MAX has new engines giving up to 20% better economy and other refinements. There is the 737 MAX 7, 7.5, 8, 9 and 10. The MAX 8 being the most recent having only just entered airline service.

The Airbus competitor is the A320NEO (New Engine Option) covering A319, 20, 21 and has similar refinements to improve costs.

These are narrowbody aircraft and are going to revolutionise the atlantic market.

Some of the 737 flights (be it an 800 or a MAX) are weight restricted due to the length of the flight so most flights will operate with a few seats empty - unless they operate a fuel stop, which is unlikely unless it's winter and there are strong headwinds.

You do realise you can just buy a couple of sandwiches in the airport and take them with you or even have a restaurant meal in the terminal. Its only a 7 hour flight. 7 hours without food is doable.

I also flew via Norwegian to New York and would never use them again, as already been said in previous comments no drinks are available. One lady asked for some water to take a tablet and was refused unless a meal was purchased. Also if required headphones and blankets had to be paid for (and seeing most return flights are at night) it's a licence to make money. This year it was back to Virgin

I wasn't joking, but I've only been to the States once, so I can't say whether it always happens. The second security check was in both directions, but I think it was on the return leg I had to down my overpriced airport water to save it being binned. I flew with American Airlines.
when will people wake up to the fact that airlines treat people like cattle - no cuppas ? FFS!!
Make sure you go through security with an empty water bottle or a few, then fill them for free after security to take on board.
