I thought with JAL you have to book round trip.
How many miles is it for first class one way from NY to the Maldives?

Anyone know of places in Europe where I can manage with a baby over shabbos in regards to either an eruv or possible accommodations next door to chabad or other meals?
Besides for Vienna, Antwerp, Venice, Gibralter, Prague, France, and Amsterdam.

London?
I actually had initially wrote London in my post but edited it out as I feared the rebuke of the purist police telling me its not EU.

Iceland. Just stay in your hotel room and bring a crockpot.

1) Iceland seems relatively boring especially with small children, even by EU standards.
2) I'm not traveling with a Crock-Pot
3) I'd rather a more inclusive shabbos experience, considering the other possible options.

I'll leave 2 and 3 because I already knew that when I posted my suggestion. But clearly for 1 we have different ideas of what's considered interesting.

No, we have different ideas of what children/infants consider interesting/doable.
Care to enlighten me here?

No, because I was focusing on your comment of it being "boring", not the "especially for children". 😬

Leaving IAD on Monday, have to be in Paris on Sunday morning for my flight to AUH so I figured I would do Thu-Sun in Paris. Question is can I squeeze in two cities from arrival Monday evening until going to Paris on Thursday? If so, which cities?
