Same ecperience on NY flight, was put on a budget carrier both ways, operated by a spanish company who were very professional and did their best. However it was very missleading by Norweigan to not even use their own planes both ways not sure why we were traveling on an econmy flight with no entertainment!.

The flight ended uo taking 9 hours and the seat was not appropiate for an average sized man. Especialy if placed in between two avetage sized men, it would have been a nightmare if i did not get lucky and move to a spare seat. At the least the food was free and edible apart from the breakfast roll which was stale.

Sorry Norwrigan but i have traveled to NY 16 times and that was my worst experience so far, if you say you are offering an economy package that will entice customers then i disagree, once you add up all rhe extra charges the flights are not really that cheap or good value, i have had far better deals for the same cost, and using smaller ecomy planes takes longer. Be aware customers! and be very clrar with your customers Norweigan, we dont like bad surprises!

On a plus though if you can get a good priced deal and travel as a city break with cabin baggage only and take your own food and entertainment and can handle discomfort then it just be worth it.

Same experience on NY flight. 1st time i flew premium on way back from NY we had a 6hr delay because the crew had to rest. 2nd time I flew they had Wamos airlines substitute. It appeara they have very few 787s so any snag means either delays or charter airlines. Great concept but they need to invest in a fleet. Guys its not an .com or App business - you need capex and balance sheet to run an airline!

Worst flight ever with Norwegian to New York as they swapped last minute for Wamos with no entertainment on flight.  Poor staff too. I will never fly Norwegian again.
