Norwegian has really introduced cheap fares to a number of US transatlantic routes. And oddly it’s worth searching their website in different currencies — because you get different prices. There are arbitrage opportunities in this case from the same seller.

The airline charges for advance seat assignments, drinks and food. They limit carry on bags to 10 kg and they charge for checked bags. But they’ve got brand new Boeing 787s and their fares are often incredibly cheap.

Wow air is a low cost carrier, so expect fees or everything.

Here’s the charges for pre-assigned seating (cheaper prepaid online than at the airport for extra legroom seats). Note that their fees vary for short haul, transatlantic East Coast, and transatlantic West Coast.

You’ll pay for anything more than an 11 pound carry on and larger carry ons and checked bags are not inexpensive.

If you travel super light, and don’t especially care where you sit on the plane, you can get some pretty amazing fares for US-Europe travel without the need for a pricing glitch. But if you’re super-vigilant there have been enough airfare sales on legacy airlines that you might prefer to wait for the next one with fewer fees. I shoot for discounted business class and upgrades myself but many readers are just looking to travel and the prices here are super cheap.

  1. Is there a reason you say, “You’ll pay for anything more than an 11 pound carry on” on WOW even though the graphic directly below says 10 kg / 22 lbs?

  2. Thanks for the helpful tip! 🙂
    Hope I can spot other great deals of airplane ticket to europe. I also enjoy reading other travel blogs such as this one:

    Best of wishes to your blog!

  3. I assume Gary’s data is just incorrect. Wow used to have a carry-on limit of 5kg / 11lbs but a few months ago increased it to 10kg / 22lbs

  4. Andy, read your question back to yourself and you should find your answer. Pretty self explanatory. Anything over 10kgs will cost you money. 11 is over 10. Hope that helps.

  5. Jer, read Andy’s question back to yourself, before making him feel silly. The quote he referenced was “You’ll pay for anything more than an 11 pound carry on.” You then say “Anything over 10kgs will cost you money. 11 is over 10. Hope that helps.”

    11 pounds is not more than 10 kilos.

    If you’re going to be snarky, try to be right.

    Hope that helps.
