The flight attendants were extremely welcoming and busy helping passengers find their seats, stowing their carry-on bags, and making them comfortable as boarding progressed. This all took place in a very relaxed environment in stark contrast to that on a U.S. carrier where passengers are repeatedly reminded that flight attendants are there primarily “for your safety” in an almost adversarial manner.


The Dreamliner pushed back from the gate at precisely 9:55 p.m. and on schedule. Due to weather in the area, we took an extended tour of JFK’s taxiways before departure and were wheels up at 11:22 p.m.

Our flight path took us on a southeasterly heading over the water where we quickly changed direction and followed a northeasterly heading over the Atlantic along the south shore of Long Island.

We continued over St. John in New Brunswick, Canada, over the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and then Newfoundland, passing over the southern tip of Greenland. We proceeded over the North Atlantic bypassing Iceland and continuing over the Faroe and Shetland Islands. We entered Norwegian airspace north of Bergen and held a southeasterly bearing to Oslo Airport in Gardermoen.

We touched down at 11:47 a.m. local time in Oslo somewhat later than planned and were at the gate at 11:53 a.m., only 37 minutes later than originally scheduled, having made up some time in the air.


Seats in the Premium cabin are arranged in a 2-3-2 configuration, and are more than just reminiscent of numerous business-class cabins I flew in perhaps a decade ago. The cabin was completely full and I had only a choice of two seats, so I opted for 4A, the next-to-last row of the cabin.
