Norwegian Airlines Premium Class Review: Trip Report

Norwegian Airlines Premium Class Review: Trip Report

I flew Norwegian Premium Class from Chicago O’Hare to London this month. Even though this is an low-cost airline, I was impressed with the value, services and amenities included for the reasonable price charged when I upgraded by ticket.

Essentially, for the price of an Economy Class ticket on another carrier, I enjoyed a Business Class-type experience including:
– Priority check-in
– Priority screening
– Extra baggage allowance
– Comfortable, reclining seat with plenty of leg room (does not lie flat like a bed)
– Lounge access (London only; O’Hare doesn’t have a lounge but they do comp you $20 for food/drink)
– Priority boarding
– Premium class cabin
– Two meals, snacks and drinks
– Friendly service
– Priority deplaning

A word of caution, they did change our arrival and departure times from when when we booked to when we actually departed. I was flexible so this wasn’t a problem for me but could pose challenges if I was traveling for business or had another tour/flight/etc. to catch.

Thank you for watching!

    Thanks for your helpful video. Does the headrest move vertically? I"m tall with broad shoulders, and I wanted to ensure that the headrest goes up so it wouldn't dig into my back! Thanks.
