Norwegian Air to Rent a Superjumbo as It Sorts Out Rolls-Royce Engine Issues

Hi Fly

Hi Fly kept Singapore Airlines’ interior on its first A380, so some customers flying Norwegian Air from New York to London this month will be assigned first class suites, unexpectedly. Norwegian is renting the aircraft because of problems with the engines on its Boeing 787s. Hi Fly

Skift Take: Norwegian is likely paying a lot more to a rent a gently-used Airbus A380 than it did for Wamos Air Boeing 747. But passengers hated the antiquated 747, and Norwegian took some criticism for flying it from New York to London. This is probably a better approach.
