Just two months ago, Norwegian announced plans to launch flights to Denver and Seattle from their London Gatwick station. All flights will be operated by the 787 Dreamliner and will seat either 291 or 344 passengers depending on the 787 variant.

Just last week, Norwegian took delivery of their first 737 MAX 8 that will be used on transatlantic flights between Western Europe and the Northeast United States. Airways joined Norwegian for the first MAX delivery and flew on the delivery flight.

Norwegian Long Haul and sister company Norwegian Air UK currently operate a fleet of 14 787 Dreamliners. Last week, the companies CEO Bjørn Kjos hinted that the airlines may purchase an additional 10 787s.
