If you were planning on having lounge access because you bought a premium seat with Norwegian, think again. The low-cost carrier made lounge access only available to PremiumFlex passengers as of Dec. 21, 2018.

However, those who bought a bought a Premium ticket before Norwegian made these changes will still have lounge access.

Premium customers traveling on flexible tickets receive complimentary lounge access at selected airports in addition to all Premium bookings made before December, 21 2018, as per the original terms of their ticket,” a Norwegian spokesperson said. 

Norwegian also said that passengers can pay for lounge access if they wish and Norwegian Reward members have a discounted entry at London Gatwick (LGW).

Norwegian’s Premium cabin is a popular choice for people looking for more comfort on a low-cost carrier from the US to Europe, and remains a solid option despite the decision to remove lounge access. Lounge access is now only available to PremiumFlex passengers on long-haul flights to or from the US or Thailand.
