Is the plane hardly booked or not?

Hi,

I want to book a flight on Norwegian Air but having just bought the Australia to Europe flights cashflow is a bit tight and I'm considering waiting a month.

When I go through the steps to book and then get to seat selection the plane appears pretty much empty. Does this mean it is hardly booked or could it also mean that only a handful of people have selected seats and the plane could be much more booked than the available seats indicate?

Thanks!

The number of people booking a seat on Norwegian flights can vary greatly.

Just returned from a Trondheim-Gatwick-Trondheim flight and on the outbound 20-odd seats where prebooked (checked the two days before travel) and the flight was half empty , on the return some 30 seats were pre-booked (checked at the same time as the outbound flight) and it was full.

Could be either, and depends on route/time.

We flew Oslo-Tromos recently, flight packed as it was mid-day; Tromso-Oslo late afternoon coming back there were only 20 passengers, if that.

it's a great airline by the way, modern clean planes, wifi on board.

Number of seats booked and other such indicators can be very misleading.
