Neither did VA have a big enough fleet to cover the Dreamliner engine issue, even with Deltas back up.
VA wet leased 4 ex Air Berlin A330s to cover that, similar to Norwegian.

Similar issues also with BA resulting in their flights to Doha being cancelled and passengers transferred to Qatar Airlines flights and some other long haul flights being operated by Air Belgium using a similar plane to the one operated by HiFly.

Im booked with Norwegian to fly to Orlando from Gatwick in August. I havent had a notification of aircraft change yet but according to this article they will be using hi-fly from 29th April to 26th October:

paddleyourownkanoo/2...i-and-chicago/

Maybe they are holding off notifying people with bookings for later in the year.

Eww that doesn't sound good. Flying into MIA and out of MCO during September. Hope they give us plenty of notice as I'll definitely be taking the refund.

Loved Norweigan and the Dreamliner last year but wet lease is definitely a no no

Did you book direct or through a third party? Ours was Expedia, although Dreamliner is still showing on the Norwegian app

Last year they wet leased a Boeing A380 ex Emirates now thats a great upgrade. Some you win, some you lose.
I feel for Norwegian as this is beyond their control, its Boeings MAX issues that has caused this, and as PAX desert them due to the wet lease Norwegian plunge deeper into debt, and an airline that tried hard to give the PAX what they wanted is gone.
Yes we all like their cheap prices but still demand all the bells and whistles with that price.
