Thank you for posting this! I had an email to say my flight time had changed but nothing about aircraft... logged into my booking and its a new plane... new seats... have been offered refund. Think this is the way to go.

Doesn't appear to be, think its just the Miami and MCO flights, best call to check though.

Its Miami, Orlando, Denver and Chicago at the minute. They are having to ground 4 of their Gatwick based 787s for another engine issue (these changes are not related to the 737 grounding) so unless something changes you should be OK with Tampa.

I would suggest keeping an eye on your booking, last night my August flights to Orlando still showed as being operated by Norwegian then they changed this morning to Hi-Fly. You can validate by doing a dummy booking for your dates.

Not sure where the info came from but just checked all Gatwick to Miami flights from 4 April to todays flight on Flight Aware site and every one has been the Dreamliner 787. The article poster above says they should be wet lease 777 aircraft? So probably take it with a pinch of salt but I do know there has been some replacements

Not so, had it confirmed by Norwegian, agreed to refund via Expedia and refund on its way. My flights have already been cancelled on the APP.

Really wish this wasn't the case but its very real.
