Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos always carries around model aircraft versions of his planes so he makes sure he gets on the right flight. Particularly when he’s launching three new US routes from the same airport in one week.
Ah there it is. Bjørn Kjos looks on as his Dreamliner arrives at London Gatwick from Los Angeles, before being turned around for the launch flight to New York JFK.

The crew of Norwegian’s first London Gatwick-New York JFK service were introduced to passengers and invited to participate in the launch celebrations. First Officer Mike Pyne, who piloted the flight, prepares to serve some of anna.aero’s delicious cake to passengers.
Tracy Vaughan, Director of International Marketing & Events, Visit Florida, and Fernando A. Harb, Vice President, Tourism Sales, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, flew over to join in the celebration for Norwegian’s three new US routes from London Gatwick – to Los Angeles, New York JFK, and Fort Lauderdale.

anna.aero’s Ross Falconer “researches” the IFE onboard Norwegian’s Dreamliner by choosing to watch Runner Runner, starring Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.
Falcon(er) lands on the top of the Empire State Building. Just to prove that he actually went on the first flight, anna.aero’s Ross Falconer is shown here at the top of the NYC landmark – look just to the left of his head you can just about see Central Park.
