Follow @MileValueAlerts on Twitter and follow these directions to get a text message every time I tweet from that account. I’ve tweeted from @MileValueAlerts only once this month, for this deal, because it is designed to be used only for the best and most limited-time deals–like mistake fares–so that you aren’t bombarded by text messages.

Pay In Krone

On Norwegian.com, select Denmark as your country. Either use Google Chrome to translate or just rely on your intuition about what everything means. The same flights that are $275 below cost only 2,156 NOK = $257.

I haven’t repriced all the flights below in krone. They are probably 5% or so cheaper.

$275 $257 Roundtrip from New York to Stockholm

Sample Dates: February 5 – February 10 on Norwegian

Search and book on Norwegian.com with their low fare calendar. This one is in euros (which are worth $1.06 today.)

Selecting one of the 120 euros outbounds and 139 euro returns, for a total of 259 euros = $275.

Other Cheap Dates

See part 1 about pricing in krone. I haven’t repriced all these, but they are probably 5-10% cheaper in NOK.

January 2016 has some roundtrips for 270.40 euros = $286.

Extra Fees

All the cheapest fares are in the “Lowfare” bucket. That comes with one carry on that weighs up to 10 kg (22 lbs.) Check out my post on one bag travel.

Everything else costs extra.

Your first checked bag is $42 each way. Your second is $50. (Check the city pair chart and see that New York to Stockholm is zone F, then read the zone F direct flight checked baggage price off this chart.) Similarly a seat reservation is $42 each way.

The eat on board menu is limited, but you can preorder from a bigger selection.

All the add ons are expensive, so I suggest traveling with just one carry on, eating before take off on the outbound, packing a lunch for the return, and taking whatever seat they give you for free. Then you can’t beat a $275 – $382 roundtrip to Sweden.
