The great thing about discount European airlines is that they have made transatlantic travel more accessible for everyday Americans. This budget air movement, spearheaded by Scandinavian Airlines such as Norwegian Air and WOW, make roundtrip flights from the United States to Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm and Reykjavik less than the price of a Coachella GA wristband. What many have learned from booking these “discount” flights however, is that not everything is as it seems. In fact, one could argue it’s better to bypass them altogether, particularly WOW. After having flown on Norwegian more than 30 times, and WOW ten times, here are the thing I believe you should be mindful of before booking.
