    FT piece from yesterday

    Norwegian Air Shuttle’s new boss battles to save struggling airline

    Geir Karlsen has huge task as he attempts to shore up finances in the low-cost carrier



    To quote from the press release

    Norwegian is a listed company on the Oslo Stock Exchange and is the world’s fifth largest low-cost airline operating 500 routes to 150 destinations in Europe, North Africa, Middle East, Thailand, Caribbean, the U.S and South America.

    And has been discussed many times before, is this a sustainable model for a truly LCC operation ?
    IMO, like others before them, notably WOW failed because they over stretched themselves too quickly

    Hope it works out, because they definitely are better than Ryanair and EasyJet. Possibly only Jet2 and Westjet are better LCC’s.
    although, I’d argue that Westjet is slowly but surely transitioning / morphing into a full service operation with low cost disciplines.
