Some of my most ticketed routes are Scandinavia to California tickets. Lufthansa Airlines has round trip tickets from Stockholm to Los Angeles and San Francisco at $290 round trip, Oslo $298-$346 and Copenhagen $348. SkyTeam and Oneworld also have discounted fares and may offer a better deal, especially if you are not one to travel light.
Warning: The lowest fares are Lufthansa Economy Light fares allowing only 8kg carry on bag. The cost for one checked bag is about $60 each way.
Low Fare Departure dates:
Jan-Apr; Oct $290-$349 lowest fares
May-June; Aug-Sep $373-$441
