Yesterday Wow Air announced that they’re moving Stockholm service to the area’s main Arlanda International Airport (ARN) effective November 18 and they dropped some amazing sale fares to promote the service.
In fact, they have $99 one-ways from Boston, Newark, and Baltimore (BWI) to Stockholm. Wow Air services Los Angeles and San Francisco as well, though fares run a comparably ‘expensive’ ~ $178. This is available in late November, early December and then January through March at least one day a week.

You can find this on Wow Air’s website or using airfare metasearch site Momondo.
Book the return from $115, so you’re looking at $214 roundtrip.
Flights are via Reykjavik. Wow air is a low cost carrier, so expect fees or everything.
Here’s the charges for pre-assigned seating (cheaper prepaid online than at the airport for extra legroom seats). Note that their fees vary for short haul, transatlantic East Coast, and transatlantic West Coast.
You’ll pay for anything more than an 11 pound carry on and larger carry ons and checked bags are not inexpensive.
If you travel super light, and don’t especially care where you sit on the plane, you can get some pretty amazing fares for US-Europe travel without the need for a pricing glitch. But if you’re super-vigilant there have been enough airfare sales on legacy airlines that you might prefer to wait for the next one with fewer fees. I shoot for discounted business class and upgrades myself but many readers are just looking to travel and the prices here are super cheap.
