Norwegian Air is taking the lead with international travel by offering some unheard of low fares. My partner and I purchased round trip tickets from San Francisco (Oakland) to Stockholm for under $500 ROUND TRIP. AND, it’s a DIRECT flight of only 10 hours!
I’ve read they use all or mostly Boeing Dreamliner aircraft that are very thrifty on fuel, so they’re passing the savings on to the customers. We thought this was a one-time offer, but it turns out, they have amazingly low fares to a variety of destinations. If you have a trip in mind, now might be the time to book that flight!
We’ve never tried this airline before and often travel in Business or First Class, but for a 10 hour flight, we’re going to give coach a try and decide later which to use next time, or on the way back. It’s difficult to find photos of their Premium class on their website, so I searched and found some. It reminds me of Virgin America First Class, which is nice, but not like Virgin Atlantic Upper Class with flat beds. That would be worthwhile, but for a 10 hour flight, we’ll see. We did upgrade a bit to get more legroom, luggage and some food. Again, we’ll see what happens.
Frankly, I can’t wait to start planning another trip using Norwegian Air. My fingers are crossed that the whole experience is good. After our flight from here to Stockholm, we’re going to evaluate the whole thing and we might upgrade to Premium for the trip back. We’ll see, and I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, go to their site and book something NOW: www.Norwegian.com
