Rating Norwegian Air Shuttle flight Oslo-Tromsø

In November I have been flying Norwegian Air Shuttle twice. This up'n coming Norwegian budget air carrier offers travelers a wide range of domestic and international destinations. The air fare is decent, but what is included elsewhere, you often have to pay extra for as Norwegian passenger. So was the case when I flied from Oslo to Tromsø mid November, a distance that equals most flights from Oslo to northern European destinations in length.
