Norse Atlantic launches Gatwick to Las Vegas flights

As with all Norse flights, you get a modern Boeing 787 aircraft and a two class cabin – economy and premium economy. The airline inherited Norwegian’s long haul fleet when the latter moved to being a purely short haul airline.

We rate Norse Premium highly. It has, by a huge margin, the most personal space of any competing premium economy seat. You can also see how Norse Atlantic’s premium economy compares to British Airways and Virgin Atlantic here.

Economy is, well, economy. The only problem is that Norse charges for literally everything, including meals, so the headline price (£399 return in this case) is a long way from what you will end up spending.

    Obviously you get the wine, but the avios cost (absent attributing value to the wine) is around 2p per avios. Moreover, the wine price is likely higher than elsewhere, so are you really acquiring avios at an attractive price (say, less than 0.8p or so)?

    • Bervios says:

      Cheapest you can buy the luxury case wines for elsewhere is about £100 (so taking a 6 quid hit and avoiding the faff of different deliveries or collections) – So the £106 deal including 5525 avios is a good deal, even better if a friend refers you and you bump the spend up to £125..

    • Richie says:

      The wine prices are higher, better wine for the price at M&S and Waitrose.

      • Gordon says:

        Always been the case with the wine flyer, there is better wine out there for the price, it depends on if the amount of Avios can soften the blow! I’ve never purchased wine from them, but I will have a look at the Gin and compare that with other retailers.

  • strickers says:

    Tried referring my wife and it said there was a delay creating the referral, then tried one of my other email addresses and it worked just fine. Wondering about trying that code on my wife’s account, she’s never ordered before.

    • strickers says:

      Got there in the end with a genuine referral, it must have been you slot maxing out the system. 7800 Avios for £152 (offer was 2500 for £150) with 12 free bottles of wine thrown in.

  • F Jackson says:

    I’m always slightly wary of piling in and buying a box of unknown (to me!) wines. After much perusing I bought 6 bottles of Chapel Down Brut for £18 each from Tesco (clubcard and 25% off 6). Probably much the same overall cost as the WF avios deals (for the same wine).
    But at least I have something I like and will have mine tomorrow!

  • Paddy says:

    The 3,000 Avios from Amex doesn’t apply to Northern Ireland, unfortunately.

  • Richie says:

    Aren’t they on Vivino?

  • Tobias says:

    For me the wineflyer Amex offer is lower: “Spend £150 or more, collect 2,500 Avios once per Card”
