Luggage limit of 10 kilo a bit stingy. Flight half empty but still made to check my wheel on
Second flight with Norwegian, on short haul and one long haul and have had a good experience on both.
Love flying Norwegian- makes Ryanair look like a greedy, poor service, bums on seats outfit.
Delays at Gatwick
Second aircraft old 737, tight leg room
Flights all ran to schedule or early, and the captain communicated the progress of the flight.
All good - just slight delay to take-off
Delay at Gatwick. Too hectic. Flight ok with longer seat room. Too small a toilet.
Short flight but still served beverages helpful and friendly
