Norwegian discontinue transatlantic flights from Ireland

Norwegian have just announced they'll discontinue transatlantic flights from Ireland from 15th September 2019.

A shame really, especially for those crew affected.

Max unlikely to have been the root cause. More like underlying revenue return which many believe was flawed from its inception. Trust the crews have better luck in securing positions.

Nice pic on BBC Online news tonight showing nose of unknown Norwegian aircraft and the tail of Monarch G-OZBF.
No attempt then to use up-to-date photo.
Sloppy.

Sorry for the crews and staff.
Cork airport's long term ambition to have direct transatlantic flights was used as a lobbying tool with the Irish and US governments to allow the Norwegian EI set up. They've now lost the routes for the second time in a decade (remember Fly Globespan?) A failed strategy which may have opened the door to further undermining of T and C's in the coming recession.

Norwegian were very shaky financially even before the MAX was grounded.
