Another news from Norwegian keeps us busy today – Norwegian launches new routes between Scandinavia and Los Angeles (LAX), Oakland (OAK) and Orlando (MCO) in the spring 2014. They will operate the 787 Dreamliner on this route, as well as a new route between New York (JFK) and Copenhagen.
REMEMBER: you must purchase your dinner at a rate of $45 and pay for a preselected seat $35, so this does add costs to your deal (that is if you want a meal and a pre selected seat!)
Norwegian currently operates six weekly flights between Scandinavia and New York as well as five weekly flights between Scandinavia and Bangkok. In November, the airline will commence flights from Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen to Fort Lauderdale, FL.
No other airlines offer non-stop flights from Oslo to Los Angeles, Oakland and Orlando;
Or from Stockholm to Los Angeles and San Francisco or from Copenhagen to Los Angeles.
The introductory fare is $236 one way.
There isn't a ton of availability for this price but it's there right now.
