When they launched the service in 2017 the service was 2x/weekly, then was upped I believe in November/December to 3x/weekly in an attempt to capture ski traffic. I think they intended to draw service back down to 2x/weekly in the summer but the serv...

Yes, I flew on Norwegian's EI-FYG MAD-LGW in February of this year. Aside from a few subtle differences (wings, engine noise) I'd say it didn't feel that different than other 737 flights I've been on recently.
