Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. In this case, however, you’ll need to search through Google and book on Norwegian’s site. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
Norwegian’s deals are back this week with flights from the US to London (LGW) for travel dates next year. Despite Norwegian’s reputation for long delays and a poor frequent flyer program, the airline has improved quite a bit, and its Dreamliner product is actually pretty comfortable.
Today, we found discounted flights departing from cities around the US, including Boston (BOS), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK). The cheapest deals available appear to originate in New York, with flights starting around $447 round-trip. Flights from Boston and Los Angeles will cost a bit more, priced at $494 and $546, respectively.
Keep in mind that it is possible to save more by purchasing your ticket through the Norwegian version of the site (select “Norge” as your language). Prices will be displayed in Norwegian Krone (NOK), and you’ll be able to save quite a bit on each flight — the JFK to LGW flight drops to $362 round-trip, for example. Travel dates appear to begin in January and last until May.
Also note that Norwegian will add fees for just about everything ranging from checked bags to food to a credit card transaction surcharge, so you might end up adding a bit more to your fare. If you’re looking for more perks included in the ticket price, you can try out Norwegian’s premium product, which includes larger seats, lounge access, free checked bags, seat assignment and meals.
Here are a few examples of fares we found (before switching the country to Norway):
New York (JFK)-London (LGW) for $447 on Norwegian:
Boston (BOS)-London (LGW) for $494 on Norwegian:
Los Angeles (LAX)-London (LGW) for $546 on Norwegian:
And after switching the country to Norway, the JFK-LGW fare drops $86 to a total of $362:

The Points Guy Assessment: The Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great pick for the beginner and the frequent traveler. The CSP has superb travel benefits, double points on certain purchases, and a 50,000 point sign up bonus. The $95 annual fee is waived the first year so this puts it as one of the less expensive cards, while still allowing you to earn one of the most valuable point currencies.
