Flying Premium With Norwegian

A look inside our premium flight to New York with Norwegian - words by Hayley / pictures by Kat...


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 hadAnd 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!

Don’t get me wrong, I quite like flying, always have. But I’ve never really had a flight where I can say I’ve actually enjoyed being on it. Yeah I’ve had some decent food, caught some great films and had some free prosecco but this flight trumps everything previously! I’m flying to New York premium class with Norwegian; it’s the first time I’ve ever flown with them and I genuinely didn’t know what to expect. I was browsing their website a couple of days ago and spotted some incredible deals such as flights to America one way from as little as £135 each way! So, if I’m honest, I almost expected them to be like a long haul Easyjet. But, ohhhhhh how I was wrong! Up until now Virgin have always been my go-to airline and the best in my books – and whilst I still love flying with Virgin, I may have to just throw it out there and say this airline tops it!

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!


So, I’m not sure if you can tell but our flight with Norwegian was really bloody amazing, both myself and Kat turned to each other as soon as we buckled up and said “how will any flight be good enough after this?!” – I’ve never experienced flying business or first class but this really has been an incredible journey (who knew flying could be so fun, heh?!).
You can book a premium flight with Norwegian for as little as £419 one way, return from £752.50 (whish is SO much cheaper than other carriers for an incredible service!). Their destinations include; Miami, NYC, Barcelona, Dubrovnik, Florida & SO many more! I’ll also be flying economy with Norwegian on our way back from NYC as I really wanted to compare both services in terms of experience and value so keep your eyes peeled for that coming soon!

Have you ever flown with Norwegian before? Where you as impressed as I was? Have you ever flown premium before?

    I haven’t been on a plane is years, and everytime I see you get on one a bit of me cries a little wanting to come too. Even the plane looks good here, it looks so fancy! 🙂

      Eeeeek sorry love! It really was, it was the first time I’d flown premium and it was such an incredible, ‘pinch-me’ moment! x

      Haha same here love, I always want to save money where possible – although I have to say, for me I would happily pay the price difference for long haul as it made such a difference to our journey! x
