North Atlantic upgrade

Norwegian Air is offering lounge access and improved in-flight service to its customers with premium tickets on intercontinental routes including its controversial North Atlantic flights.  The airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners offer 32 seats in the Premium Cabin.

At Gatwick, Norwegian operates out of the South Terminal and Premium passengers can use the excellent No 1 Traveller lounge on the mezzanine floor.  Fast Track is also provided (£10 for other travellers). 

Once on the aircraft there is no charge for seat reservations, and drinks are served before departure, prior to the meal and during it.  Dinner and the pre-landing meal are gratis but if you want a snack you will have to use the touchscreen ordering system.

Blankets and headphones are also part of the package.  Two pieces of baggage are allowed (2 x 20kg).  The airline offers USB docking and a power outlet and has one of the most up to date flight entertainment systems.  Currently Norwegian has seven Dreamliners in service with a further 15 on order. 

Norwegian long haul flights are as follows:

Bangkok (BKK): Oslo (OSL), Stockholm (ARN) and Copenhagen (CPH)

New York (JFK): Oslo (OSL), Stockholm (ARN), Copenhagen (CPH), Bergen (BGO) and London (LGW)

Fort Lauderdale (FLL): Oslo (OSL), Stockholm (ARN), Copenhagen (CPH) and London (LGW)

Los Angeles (LAX): Oslo (OSL), Stockholm (ARN), Copenhagen (CPH) and London (LGW)

San Francisco (OAK): Oslo (OSL) and Stockholm (ARN)
