Norwegian Airlines has fares at $158.50 for nonstop flights from Oakland OAK to Stockholm Arlanda ARN flying a Boeing 787 with several dates available between January and March. An even better deal is some of these low-fare Oakland departure dates allow a Stockholm connection to Amsterdam at $210 one-way.
I am flying this Norwegian route from Oakland, California to Amsterdam in a few weeks to pick up my low $422 fare on American Airlines departing from Amsterdam to Las Vegas round trip. Norwegian gets to me to Amsterdam and from there I can fly Amsterdam to Las Vegas tickets for a couple trips to Europe over the February and April school holidays at a huge discount compared to the normal $800 to $1,000+ for California to Amsterdam round trip flights. Las Vegas is one of the few routes available from Monterey airport on low cost Allegiant Airlines with ticket prices as low as $38 one way.

$210 one-way on Mondays for January 25 and February 1, 8, 15
The base fare on Norwegian does not include one checked bag ($59) or seat assignment ($42) or any food.
Norwegian Air’s LowFare+ ticket for $66 more includes one checked bag, seat selection and food, including wine or beer with your meal.
I debated whether to go bare bones, but the thought of flying 11 hours in a middle seat persuaded me to buy up for a checked bag and seat at $276.10 round trip.
One of my 2016 travel objectives will be accomplished with a long-haul low cost Norwegian Airlines flight from Oakland to Amsterdam.
