- Norwegian Air's (NWARF) series of problems with the Boeing (BA) Dreamliner has not put the budget carrier off from ordering four 787-9 jets - the stretched version of the plane - from International Lease Finance Corp (ILFC).
- The deal brings Norwegian Air's total 787 orders to 14, of which three are in operation.
- It seems that Norwegian Air is looking past the teething troubles so that it can implement its plan of taking on the major carriers on the lucrative London-New York route with budget flights.
- Norwegian Air's plan is to do for long-haul what Southwest Airlines did for domestic travel.
