Norwegian has announced more aircraft swaps at Gatwick.
Poor old Norwegian is still struggling with availability of its Boeing 787-9 aircraft due to the industry-wide problems with the Rolls-Royce engines.
The following airlines you’ve probably never heard of began operating services this week and will continue for an indefinite period:
Gatwick to New York JFK (DI7013/14) – Evelop Airlines using an A330-300
Gatwick to Orlando – Hi-Fly using an A340-300
Gatwick to Miami – Privilege Style using a Boeing 777-200
Gatwick to Chicago – Wamos Air using an A330-200
Gatwick to Denver – Wamos Air using an A330-200
If you are booked in Economy it is unlikely to make much difference, but passengers booked in Norwegian Premium may benefit from an upgrade to a ‘proper’ business class depending on which operator they are on.
These are ‘wet leases’ which use Hi-Fly / Wamos cabin crew. This has meant very bad news for Norwegian’s Gatwick based 787 cabin crew, as I will explain over the weekend.
