I’m going to start this post with a pretty bold statement. I’m currently writing this post on our flight to NYC, and I can honestly say that this Norwegian flight is the best flight I’ve ever had. And I mean ever. I’m sitting here in my uber soft tracksuit, with a face mask on and fluffy socks, and I’m in my element. I’ve just had the most delicious in-flight meal (YAY, I’ve found that airline!), my chair is reclined, I have a foot rest up and enough leg room to genuinely fit another seat in between mine and the one in front. I’m catching up on some work and then going to settle in to watching The Intern and catching some shut eye. I genuinely think the staff may have to drag me off the flight, kicking and screaming. I’ve never been so content and comfortable on a flight before!
What’s on TV: We had some incredible in flight entertainment and movies that included; Creed (bloody love that film!), Juno, The Intern, Burnt (another great film, and oh, Bradley Cooper <3 <3), The Hobbit and tonnes more!
What deals can I get? So, Norwegian have some pretty damn amazing deals right now! I spotted this package to NYC for 5 days including accommodation and return flights for just £599 and I couldn’t believe my eyes. With most other airlines that would barely cover your flight let alone accommodation too! You can pick up a return to NYC from as little as £272.40 and a one way LowFare economy ticket from £149!
So, why premium? In premium you’ll get a hella load of leg room (46 inches to be precise), complimentary food & drinks, inclusive luggage, speedy check in and boarding (so worth it to save waiting in those queues!).
When I hear the term ‘premium’ I always expect the fare to be at least double what you would pay in economy where as with Norwegian expect to pay only around £250 more. I’ve always had the same outlook on flights that I do with cars; ‘it only needs to get me from A to B, so why pay more?’ but I feel like after flying with Norwegian it’s really opened my eyes. If you’re traveling to somewhere like NYC and are only there for 4/5 days, the last thing you want is to spend the first 3 days getting over jetlag! Whereas if you’re open to paying the extra you’ll be able to stretch out, get comfy and have a real good (practically normal) sleep, which will leave you feeling so much more refreshed when you land at your destination!
Have you ever flown with Norwegian before? Where you as impressed as I was? Have you ever flown premium before?
