I'm planning to travel to Egypt this summer from San Francisco. As a poor student, of course I want to purchase a cheap ticket.
So here is the breakdown:
San Francisco (SFO) -> Alexandria (HBE): 592$
If I depart to an intermediate country:
Oakland (OAK) -> Stockholm (ARN): 241 (May 6) Stockholm (ARN) -> Cairo (CAI): 171 (May 7)
This is a striking difference right? My question is: Is it acceptable for me to travel to Stockholm and just wait for the transfer?
Update: I'm sorry I didn't present my question clearly. I'm a non-US student on F1 visa, and I don't have a Schengen visa. The two flights from Oakland to Stockholm and Stockholm to Cairo are two separate ones (which mean that they belong to two different airlines). So my question is whether I could fly to Stockholm and stay during the transit without having to obtain a Schengen visa? Thanks!!
Update 2: I'm originally from Vietnam!
