NOR­WE­GIAN AIR­LINES TOOK the un­usual step of char­ter­ing an A380 su­per­jumbo from wet lease spe­cial­ist Hi Fly for one of its daily re­turn flights be­tween London Gatwick and New York JFK this sum­mer. The tem­po­rary move was nec­es­sary be­cause of con­tin­u­ing prob­lems with some of the B787-9 fleet (other air­lines are also af­fected). It meant that some lucky pas­sen­gers got to fly in the busi­ness and first class seat­ing, which was orig­i­nally in­stalled by the air­craft’s first leasee Sin­ga­pore Air­lines. The re­place­ment wasn’t all good news, how­ever; con­ges­tion at JFK and the greater ca­pac­ity of the A380 meant fre­quent de­lays on both out­ward and re­turn flights from London Gatwick to New York. nor­we­gian.com; hi­fly.aero
