$73 transatlantic fares with Norwegian, $222 Honolulu to Kuala Lumpur, 50% bonus Flying Blue, Delta buying up AeroMexico, the better way to apply for a Citibank credit card

– Norwegian has opened up the fares for their new routes from Ireland and the UK to the US East Coast airports of Stewart International Airport, Providence Airport, and Bradley International Airportstarting at $73!

In total, Norwegian will launch 10 new routes with 38 new weekly transatlantic flights this summer from Edinburgh, Belfast, Cork, Shannon and Dublin. The flights will serve three destinations on the US east coast, with a focus on smaller US airports – these airports offer good access into the New York, Boston and New England areas but carry significantly lower landing charges, allowing Norwegian to offer some truly affordable fares that will allow as many people as possible to fly.

The new transatlantic routes will be operated on brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft – Norwegian is the European launch customer for this state-of-the-art new aircraft which offers a longer range and greater seat capacity than existing single-aisle aircraft. Passengers will be able to travel in a fresh and modern single-class economy cabin with hot and cold food options available to purchase onboard.

These new routes will use the new 737-MAX aircraft and will be one of the few single-aisles transatlantic services. Edinburgh would be highest on my list besides Dublin.

This is a big move for Norwegian and comes after a three year delay in getting the rights to fly.

– Air Asia has a number of dates (we found them in November) with ~$110 One-Way fares from/to Kuala Lumpur to Honolulu – the Round Trip is available for $222 – Amazing!

– Delta is putting more money to work and is soon the proud owner of 32% of AeroMexico

– Swiss has plenty of Business Class seats available for the transatlantic crossing using United Mileage Plus but oddly no seats show up with Aeroplan

– another interesting way to get the sign-up bonus from Citi outside the 24 months rule is to find an ‘unrestricted application link’ from the list of pre-approvals. You can access the Citi pre-approval website here. (HT DoC)
