Another Chance to Bid for Norwegian’s 737 MAX Delivery Flight!

I recently shared the opportunity to bid for a seat on Norwegian’s Boeing 737 MAX delivery flight from Seattle to Oslo, Norway.  Unfortunately, Boeing delayed the plane’s delivery and some folks had to back out of the auction.

Now, there’s a new auction to get a seat on this flight.  But you’ll have to submit your bid by 11:00 pm Pacific Time tomorrow, June 19, 2017.

Norwegian is only the second airline to take delivery of a Boeing 737 MAX.  So this is a terrific opportunity for aviation enthusiasts to experience a very special flight!

There are only 12 spots available.  And proceeds go to Norwegian’s charity partner, UNICEF.
