Starting 28 SEP 17 on their 787's

From $230 if you pick the pay for everything fare.  $290 gets you seat selection, a checked bag and a tasty snack! :D

13 hrs is going to be a tough ride.

One day I am going to abuse myself and put together an LCC/ULCC round-the-world itinerary...just because.

This flight might be cheating though since it's 1 leg instead of 3, so my odds of catastrophic disappointment are drastically lowered.

Thinking Spirit or Frontier from LAX to the East Coast - Norwegian Air Shuttle across the Atlantic - Norwegian to Singapore - TigerAir to Hanoi - VietJet to Seoul - Jin Air to Honolulu - Allegiant to Las Vegas and whatever garbage carrier from Vegas back to LA.

Richard Quest from CNN did it and filmed the experience.

I'm walking onto a Norwegian flight as we speak. Bribed (with a compliment and a snickers bar) the ticket agent to block my row. Stocked up on duty free alcohol and chocolates and suddenly I'm not flying ULCC anymore.
