Guide to Norwegian Airlines

Norwegian is by far the best transatlantic ultra-low-cost carrier. With the introduction of international basic economy by United, Delta, and American, I personally consider Norwegian a low-cost carrier rather than an ultra-low-cost carrier. The only difference now between the traditional airlines and Norwegian is the payment for food and drinks.  

They mainly operate brand new the 787 Dreamliner and the 737-Max and are planning a major expansion into the United States.
