Norwegian has announced plans to increase their daily flights from London to New York.  From 28th October 2018 there will be three daily flights instead of the current two.

The additional flight will depart from London Gatwick at 9.50am and lands at New York JFK at 1pm. The return flight will depart New York JFK at 7.40pm and land at London Gatwick at 7.10am the following day.

Norwegian adds third Gatwick to New York service

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said about the new frequency:

New York remains one of the most popular routes for Norwegian customers and we are delighted to be able to offer an additional frequency between London Gatwick and JFK Airport which will provide even further choice and flexibility combined with great value. Our modern fleet of aircraft allow our customers, whether travelling for work or leisure, to enjoy their trip from the moment they step on board thanks to our award-winning state of the art entertainment system, comfortable and spacious cabin and attentive cabin crew.”

    o/t Lloyds upgrade voucher

    If I change/cancel a BA Avios booking made with a Lloyds upgrade voucher, what happens to the upgrade voucher? does it make a diff if I change the booking rather than cancel?
    tks

    • The_real_a says:

      You cancel you lose the voucher. Change of date are allowed, change of destination allowed provided in the same avios zone. I paid a small fee (£30 ish) when i made a change. You need to call up.

    o/t How does priority pass work if you have one through a supp Amex plat and another through your own Amx Plat? Is it possible to have and use two priority pass cards? Thanks

    • Nick says:

      The name on each PP needs to match the name on a boarding pass handed over at the same time. Obviously each user can have a guest. Other than that, you can use them however you like, the agents on the door won’t have a clue it’s from a supp card.

      • rash says:

        Thanks Nick!

      • Genghis says:

        But if Mr Genghis has his a PP card from his own Plat and a PP card from being a supp, can he then guest in two people?

        • N says:

          My untested theory would be that you can guest 3. For a few weeks later this year I will have two Plats, if travelling I will try and find out/ask at a lounge

        • Pid says:

          I have guested in two people using two PP cards in my name when my plat card overlapped with the sup I had from my wife’s card. The agent does not usually mind as they are still collecting the money.

  • Matt Black says:

    OT – just booked what I considered to be a very reasonable BA holidays package over Easter holidays next year, going out in CW to SEA returning in WTP from LAS to LHR which I immediately UuA to CW. Obviously as a lowly blue the galling thing is the seat reservation charges on top.

    For the outbound leg, the only upper deck seats available to reserve (2 together) are in row 63 either a/b or j/k. I assume either of these would be preferential than the lower deck which is wide open?

    The return leg hasn’t been reticketed since the upgrade a few hours ago so it won’t let me reserve anything at the moment, but with the flight only being released to book today I’m hoping we can also book the upper deck.

    • Leo says:

      Years ago when I had no status I paid to reserve an upper deck seat on a 747. I didn’t regret it then and I wouldn’t now. That said, I flew back with AA and didn’t have to pay anything to reserve a seat. It would have galled me to pay a fee there and back thinking about it – and it’s a lot of money if there’s two of you. I’m not a great fan of CW but in my view it’s a much better product “upstairs”.

      • Matt Black says:

        I’m leaning towards booking upper now, just need to decide which seats. Would rather not have to climb over anyone and have someone do the same to me so I’m thinking 63b and 63j which are across the aisle and both exit row?

        • Leo says:

          Can’t help you there – I’ve always avoided an aisle seat in CW.

        • Genghis says:

          I never choose aisle seats. 62AK and 64AK are in my opinion the top seats. Private and direct aisle access

  • Tom says:

    The new return from NYC is game changing. The otherwise obscenely late flight back is a bit of a killer (especially because the NYC lounge situation is not great!). This is brilliant news as far as I am concerned..although I will probably still continue to take the early flight from Gatwick on the outbound leg because it is magic and like time travel (you arrive almost in time to do an entire day of work!)
