New Norwegian Service to JFKBack to Forum
I’ve just been looking at flight options to JFK with Norwegian announcing their new second service. The second service departs Gatwick at 06:00 arriving into JFK at 09:00 and leaves 12:00 arriving back into Gatwick at 23:55 (daytime flight). This fits in nicely with my work, and I’m going to give this new timed route a try.
This makes the trip a little more palatable on the return and the prices are very competitive for the Premium fare. Not a mainstream carrier, but still better timings than everyone else to get me to NYC.5 Dec 2016
I agree. An 0600 hrs departure from LGW must be earliest a scheduled transatlantic service has ever departed the UK. And the same goes for the return as eastbound transatlantic flights would normally land back in the UK around 2200 hrs at the latest.
Expect Norwegian’s cheapest transatlantic fares to be made available on both these flights.
I am sure that a good number of passengers taking that 0600 hrs flight from LGW (bearing in mind the 90-120 mins check-in time) would have spent the night in the terminal.5 Dec 2016
I think this is fantastic news. Norwegian have come up with up with a niche flight for JFK that as others say could work really well. Hope they get a full Business Class product – but they do have best in class Premium – feedback from clients is superb (for a Premium product – not Business).5 Dec 2016
BA isn’t taking this lyng down – changes are needed to compete with Norwegian….5 Dec 2016
The return times appeal and I don’t know why there are so few daytime flights eastbound.
Westbound…I can’t cope with early starts and 2 in one day is asking too much!
BTW, in the recent Cyber Monday sale, I picked up a super bargain in Premium on the same route. At least I think it was a bargain!5 Dec 2016
You can just imagine the press release…..
In response to customer feedback, we have decided to enhance the afternoon tea service. We therefore proudly announce a strategic partnership with the iconic British brand, Mother’s Pride, and our dedicated value engineers will work with them on a new range of sandwich fillings. We are currently very excited about one in particular, smoked salmon flavour. These will be served alongside mugs of builders tea, the rims suitably chipped, or a beaker of Melorest, a wine unique to us.
We will be making a small charge for this going forward, but we will not profit from it; it will only be used to offset some of the costs.
These enhancements may or may not be introduced on a limited number of services, as yet to be decided, at some point in the future.6 Dec 2016
I’ve being doing some research and have got a hit on ‘Melorest’.
Be careful before drinking any – it’s often been rumoured that cabin crew turn the temp up to make pax drowsy and feel like sleeping, goodness knows what drinking this stuff will do to you 😉6 Dec 2016
