No seriously. I booked my flight already, leaving on the 22nd (yes, this Saturday), and it cost me $550 including carry on luggage, some travel insurance, and a seat selected on the way home. I do have a hotel cost in Iceland on my way there of $70. I’m not crying about it though.

So yes, my bags are packed, and I can’t wait to get to Stockholm and give you guys some real updates about life in Sweden (I will be heading back to the US after 2 weeks of Swedish awesomeness).

Ok, so enough, who is this awesome airline that is offering this great deal? It is WOW Airline out of Iceland. Easy enough to remember with an amazing deal like that.

WOW Airlines

So cheap airlines can be cheap, I don’t except amazing service paying $550 to fly across the world. I will let you guys know how it goes. (This isn’t a paid advertisement for them, it is only for you, my awesome fans, who want to get away and go to Sweden.) And if any of you are in Stockholm when I am (the last week of April), maybe we can meet up for a fika!

    Depending on the timing and advance booking I have found comparable fares on Norwegian Air Shuttle (non-stop LA to Stockholm, $539) and British Air (LA to Stockholm via London, $505).

    I live in Detroit area and just flew to Sweden for my relatives kräftskiva. I took Norwegian NYC to Stockholm – About $300 for their second tier service that included gourmet meal, check-in bag and reserved seat. Traveled for three weeks in a Hertz Volvo V60 for $600 (insurance included) booked on autoeurope. Flew back on WOW from Copenhagen to Chicago for about $300. With WOW you pay for any drinks/food you don’t bring with you. No complaints about service. Will recommend and use them again myself. Wish domestic flights were cheaper so I wouldn’t have to use Greyhound (unable to sleep on the bumpy roads).
