As Pauly said (I believe) Norwegian have announced that they are not so interested in shorthaul, now. They 'adjusted' all our LGW flight times for the whole season, to a 2am return. Their timekeeping has gone down the pan, and they haven't put on any new FUE schedules since March.
What is going on? Maybe they find the competition too tough here!!

They've done a deal with Ryanair. Don't know if it's started already.

Norwegian will do longhaul flights from a few E.U. locations to U.S.A.
Ryanair will feed these flights from multiple E.U. locations, dealing with the shorthaul side of things.

It's the new game in town. They might be competitors, but they're in the business of making money.

Makes sense, most of their flights into Gatwick land at stupid o clock in the morning anyway, and while they are cheap it is not that convenient unless you want to go to a destination a cab ride from Gatwick.

Norweigan have started flying from Edinburgh  to New York  at quite reasonable prices
