Cons: Our flight was suppose to be at 5:10pm. It was cancelled around 10-11pm. Thankfully they were considerate of the fact that I had an infant and found accommodation for us until the next morning, but they were telling passengers at 1am to figure out where to stay until the next flight. Oo and although we knew the flight was cancelled the hassle of getting our bags and going through customs again we didn’t get to our hotel until 2:45am. Most of the staff seemed rude , but that could be because their answer for everything was a sharp “I don’t know”. I can only remember two names of the staff members that were great and put me slightly at ease during this horrible ordeal. Sandy and Suzie were kind and tried to give the best answers they could to the passengers. The flight back was on a Privilege aircraft though Norwegian. The flight attendants were amazing and much more leg room than the newer Norwegian aircraft.

Pros: Seat and crew were amazing but obviously struggled to be proud and confident of their job, can’t blame them if the company cuts expenses all over.

Cons: When you fly business class, you expect a different product than economy, because you pay almost double the price. All we got is the same lousy sandwich as in economy, neither are alcoholic or hot beverages available due to ‘shortage of staff’ as the crew announces. A flight far behind LH standards.

Pros: Nothing notably. One would assume price but it wasn’t particularly different than non budget airlines. I didn’t know Norwegian was a budget airline until I got to my destination and was complaining about how bad my traveling experience was and they told me it wasn’t because Norwegian is a budget airline.

Cons: I had a backpack and duffel back for an 8 day trip overseas. I get this is a budget airline but Ryan Air works because the sacrifices make sense given the distances they travel aren’t hours. Shoving people on a flight like that with tight space, no food, no entertainment and charging me $65 for a duffel bag that you force me to check because I’m carrying 11 kilos in two small bags? Pass. Costing $50 less is far from worth it and I regret not opting for british or pretty much any other airline.

Pros: N/a.

Cons: Cancelled after 4hours of waiting in the plane. Only one representative of the firm was outside and he lacked information. There was one hotline for all 300++ passengers to call, so of course everyone was on hold, yet this was the only possible means by which to get a flight transfer, because refunds, we were told, were not possible. Yet the next possible flight was (1) almost 24hours later, and nobody would tell us whether we would be reimbursed for an extra night's stay in accommodation and travel costs back into London , and (2) sold out within a few hours, so half the stranded passengers would have to get an even later flight, on Norwegian.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: Be on time and not spending my night at the airport because i lost the flight and they could not find anything earlier. I will never travel with kiwi again.

Excellent 10.0

Pros: WOW went out of business before our flight, and Kiwi handled our transfer very poorly, promising things they never delivered. Agents in Prague were infinitely more helpful and straight forward.

JFK
Okay 4.3

Pros: Not much really. Check-in was helpful

Cons: Very poor seating and food. No amenities in “business”. Disembarked by bus. Baggage delays. And, awful everything single use plastic and useless packaging. Such a waste and not all what one would expect from a Nordic company, even on a low cost. Same can be achieved with environmental friendly ways. Shame shame shame.

Okay 4.0

Cons: Friendliness of the staff. Plane is outdated and small. It flies. But I felt unsafe and claustrophobic

Excellent 9.0

Pros: The crew was very attentive. The food was good. The pilot did not speed.

Cons: Online check-in availability in Newark. We were in line for 2+ hours.

Cons: After getting off the shuttle to board the plane via stairs, men at the bottom and top of the stairs both stopped everyone and refused anyone to board. We were stuck on the tarmac for around 2-3 minutes. No entertainment options during the flight. No free food. Only water.

Cons: The plane was SO hot and stuffy. It was an overnight flight, so they passed out blankets—but it was so hot no one used them. The air was stale, to the point of feeling claustrophobic.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
