I book the fly ticket (RyanAir) from London to Athens on 12th April and then I applied the schengen visa. However I don't know what's wrong about the Greece embassy but my schengen visa is valid on 13th April! If I re-arrange the fly ticket, there is 1K pounds more for my journey because the hotel, ferry ticket is non-refundable. I am just think another solutions but I got couple questions about my flight journey:
1. If I still want to depart on 12th April, does the London Stansted airport allow me to aboard?
2. Since I arrive at Athens, could I stay on the airport before passport control gate or airside restaurant until midnight? After 12:00 am, my visa is valid, then I can go through the passport control to exist the airport.
3. If I didn’t going with the outbound ticket, could I still use the return ticket?
Really waiting for some idea or suggestions
Thank you very much everyone.
