Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.
We are seeing very low prices on Star Alliance Airlines from New York to Stockholm (ARN). Prices this low are typically reserved for low-cost carriers like Norwegian, but United, Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Air Canada are all combining to offer prices as low as $348 round-trip. There are also discounted fares to Oslo (OSL), but not as low as those to ARN. This cost includes seat reservations, one checked bag, meals and valuable frequent flyer miles as well. All flights require at least one connection, but this could still be a better deal than Norwegian’s nonstops, even if the prices are comparable on several dates. We found availability from October through December, including during Thanksgiving.
