If you have been paying any sort of attention to airline deals, you cannot have helped but to notice Norwegian Air Shuttle. Norwegian is largely a newcomer on the American scene, offering inexpensive flights from the U.S. to Europe and parts of the Caribbean.
But Norwegian is what would be a budget or a la carte carrier, meaning that you pay for most things individually based upon your needs. Paying for baggage is nothing new (but it actually less than the American airlines bag fees if you pay online in advance, with the fee only being $17 each way), but Norwegian also requires you pay for your seat selection ($17 each way), and all on-board refreshments.
Still, with the fares they are offering, I decided to give them a whirl, especially since they are now offering flights from the West Coast to Europe. Below is my Norwegian Air Shuttle review.
