Norwegian Air 's founder and Chief Executive Bjoern Kjos has said it will seek compensation from plane maker Boeing for costs and lost revenue after grounding its fleet of 737 MAX 8 aircraft in the wake of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

Norwegian Air plans to discontinue flights between North America and Ireland in September, the latest cutbacks for the European discount carrier as it focuses on profits over growth.

The move, which the airline partially blamed on the extended grounding of the Boeing 737 Max, is effective Sept. 15 and affects three transatlantic routes:

Providence, Rhode Island-Dublin: Four weekly flights

Newburgh, New York (New York Stewart International Airport)-Dublin: Daily flights

Hamilton, Ontario-Dublin: Three weekly flights

J.D. Power: Airline Service at All-Time High; Alaska, JetBlue, Southwest Are Tops Customer satisfaction with air travel has never been better. Or so says J.D. Power in its 2019 North America Airline Satisfaction Study. The study, now in its fifteenth year, shows overall satisfaction has been trending up for the past eight years for US and Canadian airlines. “Airlines continue to deliver on the operational side of air travel,” Michael Taylor, Travel Intelligence Lead at J.D. Power, said in a statement accompanying the study’s results, which were released Wednesday morning. “New technology investments have dramatically improved the reservation and check-in process.

Norwegian Air will no longer operate transatlantic routes between Ireland and North America , after the airline announced that these routes are not commercially viable. The airline has said "several thousand customers" will be impacted by the route closures.

Up to 134 jobs are at risk after Norwegian Air announced its decision to discontinue all its transatlantic routes from Ireland in September. “Since March, we have tirelessly sought to minimise the impact on our customers by hiring replacement aircraft to operate services between Ireland and North America .

Travelers holding tickets for travel to Dublin from the three airports after mid-September are eligible for a refund or rebooking on other Norwegian flights. The latter option will require flying out of another airport as Norwegian will no longer serve Providence, Stewart or Hamilton after the Dublin flights end, and connecting in Stockholm; Oslo, Norway; or Copenhagen, Denmark; which the airline will still serve to and from Dublin.

Norwegian previously offered service from Providence and Stewart to other destinations in Ireland, but those were suspended earlier this year due to the Max grounding. The latest decision comes as there is still no timetable for the plane's return and using other aircraft on the routes, at one point a much larger Boeing 787 Dreamliner, is not economically viable, the airline said.

How to Tell If You’re Flying on a Boeing 737NG

How to Tell If You’re Flying on a Boeing 737NG The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has identified more than 300 Boeing 737 aircraft that require inspection over concerns about “improper manufacturing” components in the planes’ wings, as the leading edge slat tracks may have been improperly manufactured.

“Since March, we have tirelessly sought to minimize the impact on our customers by hiring replacement aircraft to operate services between Ireland and North America,'' the airline said in a statement. "However, as the return to service date for the 737 Max remains uncertain, this solution is unsustainable."

Norwegian was cutting routes before the Max grounding, though. A year ago, the airline dropped four U.S.-Europe routes from Providence and Stewart, which is about 60 miles north of Manhattan.

It announced the addition of Providence, Newburgh and Hartford, Connecticut, to its route map, using the 737 Max, with fanfare and $65 fares in early 2017. The Hartford flights didn't last a year.

Norwegian will still have plenty of flights between the United States and Europe, though many of the routes are seasonal. The airline has flights from 14 other U.S. cities: Austin, Texas; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Los Angeles; Miami; New York JFK; Newark; Oakland, California; Orlando, Florida; San Francisco; Seattle; and Tampa, Florida.
