Cons: Very disappointed in my first longhaul flight on Norwegian Air. Check in staff at Boston was snarly, the food was very average, and the leg room in economy was the least I've ever experienced on an international flight. I am 5 foot three and I do not understand how anyone even a few inches taller than me would not be in imminent danger of developing a blood clot. Horrible. This is a Dreamliner? I only had nightmares.

Pros: The seat was comfortable. Left late but arrived on time.

Cons: Booked through a service so didn't know no food or water free on a trans-Atlantic flight. Flight "boarded" 1.5 hrs before the take-off time. We were connecting, so rushed to the gate without food or water. Then just sat in a locked area. Only sandwich available on flight--7 Euros. Water was 3E.

Mediocre 3.5

Cons: Arrived at Paris (CDG) airport 55 mins before take off as my Air France flight from Bordeaux to Paris was delayed by an hour. Was told that checkin closed 1 hour before take off & there was nothing they could do, customer service was in Oslo! Was given a piece of paper with 2 phone numbers!

LAX
CDG
Good 7.0

Cons: We got to Paris and they had to bus us off. Which would have been fine but they had one tiny bus going back and forth every 10 min for a massive 787. It took at least 5 trips to get everybody off. Even if we had just been told that was could have stayed in our seats as each load got off.

LGW
LAX
Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: Everything. The check in machines were broken so I was FORCED to miss my flight. I had to pay $329 to get the next flight which was the next day and I paid for insurance. I'm across the world with no working phone, nowhere to stay and barely have anymore money yet instead of the desk right in front of me helping I had to call Norwegian. I've never heard of an international airline that doesn't feed you for 10 hours and then runs out of food for you to even purchase. It's madness. I will NEVER fly Norwegian again and I will let everyone know not to either.

LGW
LAX
Good 7.3

Pros: The plane was amazing. New Dreamliner - comfortable and great entertainment.

Cons: The crew was borderline rude. It seemed like they all hated their job. They did the bare minimum and with a negative attitude. We had great service on the outgoing flight but on the return not at all (outgoing flight was Norwegian crew, return was British crew - just FYI). One example - I ordered some crisps from the handy touch-screen snack bar and no one came. After about 20 minutes I went back to check and the crew were all sitting in the back on their tablets with the screen above them flashing "New Snack Bar Order".

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
