Norwegian 787 flies New York-Gatwick in just over 5 hours

Low-cost airline, Norwegian broke a record recently when one of its 787 Dreamliners flew to New York from London in 5 hours and 13 mins.

Breaking the record for the shortest flight on that route by a commercial aircraft, the flight arrived at JFK 53 minutes early, presumably to the delight of the 284 passengers on board.

Strong winds over the Atlantic ocean led the flight to reach speeds 776 mph.

The captain of the aircraft said that the flight would have arrived even quicker if it was not for turbulence.
