Oneworld carriers British Airways, Finnair and American Airlines offer you flights from Stockholm to Los Angeles starting at SEK 4,166 (~€370). Unfortunately, checking bags (unless your status allows you to bring one for free) is quite costly, as a fare including one sets you back SEK 5,391 (~€479).
Our availability calendar shows you all possible flight dates at the lowest fare for trips up to 28 days. You can select your flight dates, and it will take you to ba.com or to the Travel-Dealz Flight Search.
You would change planes either in London or Helsinki. Flights between Stockholm and Helsinki are either on NoRRA’s ATR72s or Embraer 190s (both having 2-2 configuration) on behalf of Finnair or on Finnair’s A320 family aircraft itself. Flights between Helsinki and Los Angeles are on Finnair’s Airbus A350s which have a 3-3-3 configuration.
If you travel via London, you’ll find yourself on BA’s Airbus A320 family aircraft with the standard 3-3 seating layout. Then you can choose between American’s Boeing 777s (3-4-3) and BA’s A350-1000s (3-3-3), Boeing 777s (with the 3-3-3 config) or Airbus A380s (config depends on the floor). We don’t recommend choosing American Airlines.Error: 429
Search & Book
The fare rules don’t specify an expiration date. You need to stay at least one night from Saturday to Sunday (but at least 24 hours) or 6 nights at your destination to get the lowest fare. Availability is pretty decent from August 2022 onwards.
You can use our calendar above to find availabilities. It will forward you to either ba.com or to the Travel-Dealz Flight Search with your selected dates. You can also use Google Flights (instructions) to set additional filters and then use our Go2 browser extension to book your flights.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
If you book on British Airways’ website, the short flights will be issued in booking class S and the long flights in booking class O, regardless of the operating airline. If you transfer in London and book through BA, this will be your earnings:

Information & Tips for USA
The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.
Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements
The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA) for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.
The Best Time to Visit
Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.
The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
