In the past we saw most airlines, including legacy airlines, slowly follow FR's example, i.e. you have to pay to check in luggage.
Now that FR is charging for carry-on luggage that does not fit under the seat in front of you, others will slowly follow again. Norwegian first, I think. SN second ?
Personally, I am totally in favor as this makes boarding and disembarking faster.
There is less stress as there is no stress due to the "fight" for space in the overhead bins.
Excellent initiative !

Norwegian is still negotiating with Boeing about B737 MAX compensation. As a result of the grounding, the carrier estimates its reduced profit before tax to take a hit of more than US$100 million. Norwegian may also reintroduce its A320neos instead of leasing them out.

Norwegian has returned three summer 2020 slots at London Heathrow due to current fleet pressures placed on the airline.

I don't understand why they would return them knowing it is so hard to get them and how valuable they are. I wonder whether leasing them to another airline wouln't have been a better option

Norwegian are downsizing because they’re loosing money on almost every route, not because they’re lacking aircraft.
I don’t think you can lease slots at LGW, it’s use it or loose it.

A court in England once ruled that trading of slots is possible, hence my reaction. If they have the option to do so, it seems strange not to do so.

I think trading is only allowed after the slots have been operated for two years under the use it or loose it rule.

Norwegian has called off plans for a so-called repair offering of shares as the market price has dropped below the level at which the carrier sold new equity in late 2019.

Norwegian may face a tax bill of US$92.5 million over its reorganization in 2014. The carrier expects it to be reversed in the courts.

Norwegian expects its aircraft back from Argentina by June 2020, with delivery of four B787s and up 16 B737 MAX during the year. Also in 2020, eight leased B737 NGs will be redelivered, followed by 12 in 2021.
