From a consumer point of view this makes Norwegian the nicest travel option (when things go right and you don't end up on a Wamos flight).
From a marketing and finance point of view, it looks like Norwegian is rather stubborn with its model and the marketing guys of this airline sort of "played truant" when the lesson "up-selling" & "increasing revenue" were given.

For starters that at least covers all but one of the 787-9s based in LGW under the NAUK AOC (G-CJGI the exception), since the other 787-9s shuffle around the other destinations.
Sounds exciting, was waiting for this to happen but too I wondered about the cost or if they'd ever even find a contract provider for long haul. Of course now it'll be an even bigger setback to those getting Wamos'd.
Article also mentions their 737 MAX 8s getting it, which is good to hear after reading from one or two video trip reporters that the MAXs didn't have the WiFi turned on.
