Pay In Krone

Start on the Norwegian version of Norwegian.com because prices are lower in Norwegian Krone than US Dollars. Use Google Chrome to translate the page to English. Pay with a card with no foreign transaction fees.

Extra Fees

All the cheapest fares are in the “Lowfare” bucket. That comes with one carry on that weighs up to 10 kg (22 lbs.) Check out my post on one bag travel.

Everything else costs extra.

Your first checked bag is 250 NOK ($28) each way. Your second is 300 NOK ($34). Similarly a seat reservation is $28 each way.

The eat on board menu is limited, but you can preorder from a bigger selection.

All the add ons are expensive, so I suggest traveling with just one carry on, packing a meal to take on board, and taking whatever seat they give you for free. Then you can’t beat a $302 roundtrip to Copenhagen.

Best Way to Buy the Ticket

Buy with the Citi Prestige® Card, since it has no foreign transaction fees, and you will be paying in krone. The first $250 in flights per calendar year are refunded to you as a statement credit. This includes fees like the checked bag fee, seat reservation, or meals that you purchase at the time of ticketing or later. After the statement credit, your roundtrip ticket from Los Angeles to Copenhagen will cost $52 plus any optional fees.

If you’ve already maxed out the statement credit, you will still earn 3x ThankYou Points on the award taxes. The Citi Prestige® Card also comes with a 50,000 ThankYou Point sign up bonus.
