Hi,
Would be great news as LH don't give any fleet grow or more destinations to SN.
BOS-JFK-SFO-LAX-JNB ...
Lots of opportunities... But not realistic as Norwegian is also shrinking their fleet and network and money is running out....
As WOW and AirAsiaX also proved before... Hard to make money this way...

New types planned for 2019 : AN24,B763nonER

Dear Paul
Do you mean this post from 2017 ?

I think that Norwegian has other 'issues' to solve for the moment.

But would be great news if this would be considered !

Norwegian postponed delivery of 16 aircraft to cut its Capital Expenditure as part of a broader strategy shift to focus on profitability over growth.

Norwegian will put off delivery of 12 B737 MAX from 2020 to 2023 and 2024, and four A321LR from 2019 to 2020, reducing its investments this year and leading to a further significant cut in 2020.

Norwegian spokesman Philip Allport told Aviation24.be: "This is pure speculation. Our liquidity is satisfactory, we attract hundreds of thousand of new passengers every month and we are currently working on selling parts of our fleet, which will further strengheten our financial situation."
Selling parts didn’t work, Norwegian is now offering new shares at 1/3 of last moday’s value to raise 300 million emergency cash.
The company is now only worth 500 million €. (LH paid around 200 for SN if I remember well)

(Off topic: Passenger, if you followed my advise to go short earlier this year you would have made a profit of 250% in less than two months!)
