Every expat’s dream right, when a low cost airline introduces a cheap route home!? At the end of March, Norwegian Airlines started flying between Chicago O’Hare and London Gatwick. I flew over Easter weekend for $500/£350 RETURN, if I wasn’t flying over a peak weekend, it could have potentially been even cheaper. I had booked the Norwegian LowFare, my first time flying long haul with a budget airline and believe it or not, it wasn’t horrendous!
Jamaica was a good trip for me, not only did I do some awesome activities, I met a life long friend (who is now stuck with me forever! Read our story: HERE), I also ended up getting upgraded on my flight home. There are blogs everywhere giving ‘tips’ and people are always asking how to get them, but I must have broke all the rules, I didn’t even try to get upgraded! Here’s how it worked for me.
