Huge amount of error fares to USA and Canada from Europe, eg Oslo to Washington £102, Stockholm to NYC £126 via Momondo

Absolutely vast amounts of error fares right now among Star Alliance airline members (SAS, Air Canada, Lufthansa, United, Swiss and more) on transatlantic routes.

Best examples, in-directs for Oslo to Washington from £102 (17th-23rd April) or Stockholm to New York can be had for £126 (7th Feb-14th Feb), including meals and luggage.

You can find connecting flights from London airports to Stockholm for around £40 or £75 including luggage meaning a full service flight to NYC for around £200.

These are all indirect so you'll essentially be making 2 stops on your way to the US/Canada, but there are also bargains to be had from UK regional airports that whilst a lot more expensive are comparable to what you'd typically pay for London departures, around £350 or so, and only involve the 1 stop in Europe.

This is a mega error fare covering a ridiculous amount of dates (basically anything but Summer), airlines and airports so I'm not going to list reems of examples, do your own leg work and see what comes up for you.

As with all error fares, do not book connection flights or hotels until you've had your confirmed e-ticket issued for some time.

"in-directs for Oslo to Washington from £102 (17th-23rd April)"

For the first example as quoted above, on the return trip with 2 stops the second layover is London heathrow!

Spotted the same thing with some other flights, the first layover is London gatwick or heathrow, does that mean you can just skip an additional flight to Oslo and back to UK and board the London to US flight only?

Yep, plenty more to choose from as well, shorter durations etc for just a few quid more.

Seen many with Edinburgh lay overs, but can be risky if you check luggage and exit early.
How do I go about finding the price errors, or is it literally just trial and error?

You have to board at the departure airport but if you were hand luggage only, there’s nothing stopping you from “missing” the last leg of the return flight. You would struggle to get away with it with hold luggage though as that would continue to the final destination. There’s a whole website in the US (or at least there was, might have been shut down) dedicated to finding these kind of deals, it’s called skiplagging. The airlines tried to shut it down but I don’t know if they succeeded.

It is called skiplagged, and is still going.

Nope. It would be cancelled.

On your inbound, there’s nothing against it unless you check in luggage.
Hot if the airline honours the tickets.
