Norway has lifted restrictions on entry into Norway for people resident in countries in the UK, Schengen area or EEA that have an acceptable level of infection. This means that residents of these countries will not be subject to quarantine when arriving to Norway.

Travelers who are not residents in the above-named countries may only travel to Norway for specific reasons, for example to begin work or study in Norway, provided that the work is imminent. In order to gain entry, they will need to bring a copy of a work contract. People coming to Norway to work on a temporary assignment you should also bring evidence of this. Those who come to Norway to work or study are required to follow the quarantine regulations.
Non-residents are still able to transit via Norwegian airports as long as the final destination is not within Norway.
Entry is still restricted for most other travelers who are not nationals or residents of the UK, Schengen area or EEA countries.
From November 9, all travelers coming from high-risk countries must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test results issued within 72 hours prior to arrival.
Travelers must have a confirmed quarantine accommodation for the period of intended stay.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "Have at least water offered"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "The crew was rude, we took off over an hour late, there was no food for sale on board"
Pros: "The crew for the rear of the plane for this flight was fantastic."
Cons: "More Woodford reserve. Was only 1 available."

Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Was a great flight"
Cons: "We stayed one hour in the plane without any reason"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay causing me running through the London airport to make my flight only to sit in the airplane for an hour because someone decided at the last minute not to travel. In the end, my only two bags didn’t make it. So inconvenient."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Cons: "New York to Fresno Glight delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "My flight was amazing---amazing in the fact that I had to be on top of flight status and was rudely spoken to by the sellers of the ticket. They almost cancelled my entire trip, even though I paid for it, because while at work I could not pick up the phone when they called me. This site is seriously a scam to buy your ticket from. I survived and was able to go---but I would never encourage anyone to buy through this site, unless you just really love living a nightmare. If you love nightmares, why not. Go ahead."
Cons: "Kayak is a nightmare to buy your flight through."

I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "I have to say, I’m a medium sized 6 foot guy, but I felt very uncomfortable in the seat with another 6 foot man to my right. I felt like I couldn’t use rest my shoulder, since he was using the armrest. i know this is a calculated decision made by very high ups, but the seats just need more comfort. I was even in an exit row, which has more legroom in comparison, but the actual seat was almost painful."
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."

Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Cons: "Very small niggle but it could be very frustrating for people. I watched the Hobbit trilogy on the flight. The films appear in the menu alphabetically. Viewing them this way leads to a 1,3,2 order.... There is no indication (that I saw) for the order they should be viewed."
